Gabo Time

by gordonmichaelsutton

Week 2 of my drawing course at Tate Liverpool and I’m being challenged to use my drawing to represent a 3 dimensional object in an abstract manner. I chose to have a go at a piece by Naum Gabo – Construction; Stone With A Collar, 1933.


The tutor suggested that we sketch our chosen object from three angles. Here’s my sketch.


After nearly an hour we returned to the studio and were invited to develop our sketches using whichever materials we wanted. I chose pastels and this is the end result.


A little rough round the edges but not bad to have completed this plus the original sketch in just three hours.

For those of you interested in finding out more about the work of Naum Gabo you might want to check out this site –
