What did you find most interesting about Georg Daniel Flohr? I loved the touch of his work and his marks. I was interested in his handwriting and the feel of history andAlexandra Sheldon: Georg a long gone era. I liked the stains and marks of time on the pages. I was interested in how  Georg Daniel was responding to everything he saw, either with words or images.

How does this project relate to your studio practice? I immediately started to
copy Georg Daniel’s handwriting and did this daily for weeks, with a sepia coloured pen. I planned a trip to France and painted there with the intention of responding to place. I marinated myself in thoughts about Georg Daniel and allowed myself to paint and draw whatever felt right. The handwriting became a constant flow in the work. The words I wrote were stream-of-consciousness. For five weeks in Brittany, Georg Daniel was my muse.
