These drawings show Clark working through a number of variations on a theme. They explore different relationships of plane and line, but result in a sense of three-dimensional sculptural form articulated on a flat surface by the areas of light and shade, positive and negative. The composition suggests a series of folds along linear divisions, perhaps anticipating her later sculptural works titled ‘Creatures’ which are composed of hinged aluminium plates.
