Richard Stride came to BIA to have a look at the exhibition space, and to talk about the Pace project. Over the summer, he has completed some more of the works I am interested in for Drawling, and we talked about which space in the gallery might suit his works. Richard is one of the two artists I mentioned who does have drawings for the Drawling show – these are quite meticulous works in pen, which in terms of the working process means that errors cannot be erased. Slow and concentrated works.
I also like Richard's colourful installed works; some of the earlier ones incorporated what looks like graphite dust with plastic crates, and the work appears deceptively small in the images, until you notice the corners of the room!
