And now my Oystershell!

Difficult!

I can sort of see the connection in that Kathy Prendergast’s city drawings don’t look like city’s. Though the last one has a river and I think most people would say… Oh… that’s London.

But in that they each have a defined and different personality, and are very different to the representational source, I’d agree a connection. There is a transformational element.

However my shell is finite, bound, an object whereas her ‘city’s’ are alive like a virus or fungus with tiny filaments. Mine has a separation – it is organic – but like a seed or shell is dormant. Hers are ‘living creatures’ in an environment (like cities!) even though we don’t see that environment.

Cities are alive.

My shell is dead.

So though both are transformational they both capture an essence of the original.

Okay, I’m going to buy the similarity!
