Nathan Hawkes is a Sydney-based artist and graduate of the National Art School.
His work is grounded in the practice of drawing as a way of paying attention to and reflecting upon the visual dynamics and sensations encountered in his daily life. The large-format drawings are principally conceived and made within the living space of his family home and as such embody the chaos, bliss, tension and dreaming particular to such a context.
"I am obsessed by the seemingly endless vitality and flexibility inherent to the act of drawing. Being arguably one of the oldest modes of communication there is something so deeply rooted, open, adaptive and non-exclusive about the practice of making marks on a surface in various ways to embody an idea or sensation."
