Here is a time lapse of the wall drawing progress for my solo show in Rundum Artist-Run Space in Tallinn. It is a drawing of the Sea Shepherd ship M/V Bob Barker based on a beautiful photo taken by Jo-Anne McArthur (We Animals). The whole process only took something like 7 hours and several marker re-fills. I was extremely happy to be able to do this; drawing on walls is incredibly fun and hopefully I can repeat the experience again soon! If it was up to me I’d be doing a lot more drawing on walls, filling whole rooms with drawings in fact, a little like Charlotte Mann who draws furniture and decorations and even parquet floors! There are so many intricate details in her work, it is just mind boggling. Perhaps one day I will have a blank-canvas room all to myself to fill with a linear world…
Big Glove (Ship Life series) – drawing in a light box, Anastasia Parmson 2013
Here is a sneaky-peaky of one of my light boxes (with Tallinn city lights in the background)! This one is called “Big Glove”, it is part of a series of light box drawings entitled “Ship Life” that retrace moments of my time spent onboard one of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society ships in the Antarctic waters. This work could perhaps evoke the bleak and cold environment of the Southern Ocean with its snow-white shiny backdrop and the images reduced to a bare minimum.
Between assembling the boxes, getting some other artworks printed and encountering various technical difficulties in-between all that I am also putting together an exhibition project for a freshly opened artist-run space Rundum situated in the old town of Tallinn. As well as doing research on some upcoming juried shows and open calls; meeting new interesting people from the local art world; slowly putting together my website… Interesting times!
