Drawing from sculpture
Carving stone for long periods of time, rubbings become a natural extension of my sculpture. In the ‘roughing out’ period, I use points and hard charcoal to draw directly on the stone. As form and texture emerge, graphite rubbings further document my process. Most are one of a kind drawings, as I continually change the surface texture of the stone with point and chisel. I find these rubbings of work in various stages, to be an exciting representation of stone in the two-dimensional format.
“White, Black and Shades of Gray,” Juror, Diana Gaston: “..a number of exceptional sculptural works submitted as well. The traditional limestone piece by Robin MacDonald-Foley is countered by the artist’s own reworking of the three-dimensional object into a graphite drawing.”
