All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace

This is a set of work that has been rattling around in my head for a long time but it’s only really come to its fruition with the building, in my studio, of my new ‘drawing wall’! I’ve finally got a distinct wall now that has been made for working on. It’s nine foot tall and eighteen feet wide, fully lit, and will make large drawings much easier to do.
The title of this set of drawings comes from the poem  “All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace” by Richard Brautigan. It was an idealistic, or perhaps ironic, notion of humanity’s future written in the sixties. There has been the first suggestions of an offer of a de-sanctified church to exhibit these finished metre square angel drawings and I’ll let you know if and when that happens. Here are the preparatory drawings:
