Description: "For me, drawing is a foundational activity, something that I do every day. In a sense it is a seed bed of and for ideas and feelings. It is also a place of escape from the procedural demands of making sculpture. Sculpture takes a long time; it involves planning and persistent physical activity. But drawing is wonderfully open. I do drawings in notebooks that deal with specific issues in the making of sculpture, but the drawings that I enjoy best are the ones that are free explorations”. Antony Gormley
