This series of drawings continues the interest in the still life in the studio with the investigation of the various elements of design and quality of light. In the Jan 10 drawing the objects represent a archetypal family history, a chronological memory of time in a particular space.

As recurring objects they can represent persons or buildings and artifacts that have a particular historical archeology. The ubiquitous incandescent light bulb is replaced by newer technology, the LED and is a symbol of its origin in a particular time and place.

Similarly the newspaper and boom box transistor radio are now symbols of another time and they too have been replaced by the cell phone and other newer technology.
