Further information

This was the first in a body of work based on views of the artist’s studio at the time, an old stable in Fitzroy, Melbourne. ‘I have spent the last few years looking at the immediate environment in which I live, both interior scenes and inner city spaces …’ (Peter Bonner, 1997). 'Interior' reveals Bonner’s pared-down approach to drawing, in which changes that result from erasing and refining charcoal lines leave ghostly traces on the paper, all contributing to the final image.
