Drawn in black marker with silver outline, Pierre le Riche’s Discus Diva 1 offers insight into the artist’s sketchbook. Described in only the barest of details, the page torn from a notepad, this figure study is as much a musing on a body in motion as it is a trace – a fragment from the studio reimagined as discrete art object.
 
Many of Pierre’s marker drawings were later reimagined as large, yarn-tufted tapestries towards his exhibition at THK Gallery, Urns for the Ashes of my Lost Lover: Part 1, which opened in May 2021. The presence of these bold silhouettes offers a new figuration in the artist’s practice. “While  the  tapestries  are  a continuation  of  his  fibre-based  work,” Sean O’Toole writes, “ the  human  subject  was,  until  recently, implied  rather  than  stated  in  Le  Riche’s  work.”
