Isobel Plent Das Gupta
I am an artist from London currently living and working in Bristol.
I am currently enrolled on the Turps Correspondence course (London).
My practice is centred on drawing through the mediums of charcoal and paint.
I like to draw from observation; in situ, from photographs and film stills, as well as from memory. I enjoy the process of abstracting these drawings; enlarging, dissecting and reassembling them onto canvas. I often abandon the drawing at a point along the way, allowing me to have a new conversation with the canvas. My recent focus has been on ideas that relate to limits and resistance, architecture and mechanics, home and migration.
