Dear Cleo

While you were doing maths this morning, I spent time watching Auburn draw on his new drawing machine, I don’t know what it is called, but you can draw on it and then erase the drawing by sliding a button across.

Parallel Project Collaboration

1.2 Drawing with Auburn

Figure 1 (17 11 10 01) Drawing 001 by Auburn progress stylus on drawing machine

Auburn’s attention span is quite short, there are so many things to capture his attention and his developing mind, so it was not so difficult to catch progress shots of his work.

One thing that struck me was the ephemeral nature of this type of art, you can’t stick a drawing machine to the fridge door, but there was something else as well, I am stopping analysing Auburns art as a psychological measure of his progress but beginning to look at it as Art with a capital A.

Twombly and Picasso for instance created art that resembled childlike drawings, but this was something they had to learn how to do whereas Auburn is a natural. People find the drawings of children delightful, could there be something in them that appeals to our DNA, primitive and childish art was incorporated into 20th century fine art, there could be more to this than meets the eye. It will definitely take more research I will report back when I have considered it some more, so many questions and so few answers

Congratulations on the hundred percent at maths class and I will catch up with you in the week.

Love as always

Mickos xx
