Kashin

Completed 2019

This 24”x24” panel was commissioned for the Drawing Codes exhibition.

Kashin is the name of the supernatural that guard Korean homes (家神).

The axonometric projection - invented in Asia as seen in Moghul miniature paintings and Chinese landscape scrolls -  is a useful medium in which to dissect the strange formal outcome of a closed figure with a half-pipe base, a cubic body, from which a spiky crown brings down light. Behind the drawing convention of the axon is a deeper world accessible by holograph.
