Antony Gormley, Attendant, a black and grey ink wash drawing

England, AD 1994

This drawing belong to a series from the first half of the 1990s known as Body and Light in which the black pigment is dispersed in water, in keeping with the artist's interest in exploring fluidity, depth and movement through different elements. Most were made in the Lake District at a house on Coniston Water which the Gormleys have visited regularly since 1984.
