Henry Moore – Drawing

Henry Moore’s sculptural drawings are the beginning of the process of his making. They pull in the shapes which inspired him from his environment, and he would transfer those forms into drawing. Using his imagination and own technique he would take these drawn objects and influence the shapes into his own creation. Drawing is a way to work out the shape and structure of a sculpture and Henry Moore would use shading and colour to create depth and form.

I think that these drawings are as strong as his sculptural work, referencing the depth of sculpture through his mark making. I enjoy the way that they push me, as a viewer, to consider the inside of the object as well as the outside, and the space which surrounds it.
