Utilising many of the same concepts as his sculptures, figurative drawing becomes a way to explore the body as a totemic entity: spiritual, biological, abstracted and shamanistic. Drafted with pencil on paper, Hale Bopper depicts a figure as both natural and mechanical. Matthew Monahan renders his study as an anthropological blueprint: beneath the crisp diagram are faint traces of perspective lines, alternate poses, and alteration smudge marks. Reminiscent of old masters’ medical studies, Monahan’s figure diverts from the purely human, suggesting a being both ancient and alien.
