Daily Drawings: Week Four

As people around the world stay indoors to curb the spread of Covid-19, Artforum has invited artists to share a drawing—however they would like to define the word—made in self-isolation. Check back each day this week for a new work by a different artist.

Dan Mitchell, Brutal Turd House, 2020, dimensions variable.  A new Brutalist/Cubist house designed for Michel Houellebecq. Inspired by a large pile of dog shit (there’s suddenly much more of it about as refuse cleaning in parks and streets in London has been suspended). Ideally the building would be situated in a nice rural spot in Pays de la Loire, lots of greenery and good views from and of the house. I’ve been spending the lockdown working on my “balcony tan” and reading Erich Fromm’s The Fear of Freedom, highly recommend.

Fin Simonetti, Yoke drawing, 2020, pen on paper, 11 x 15".

Cindy Ji Hye Kim, Mural sketch (tbt), 2020, graphite and ink on paper, 9 x 4.75". This is a sketch I've been working on for the past few days in my bedroom. It's for a mural that's supposed to be drawn on a wall, which measures around 10 feet high and 15 feet wide. It was satisfying to work on intricate details in a much smaller scale on a piece of paper, and let my hands indulge.

Julien Ceccaldi, Young Landlord, 2020, digital drawing.
