David Brits’ practice spans printmaking, drawing and video, but over the last three years he has, in his own words, “devoted his time solely to formal investigations in public-scale sculpture”.
These test pieces created by Brits are draft renderings of his public sculpture works in the form of collages and sketches. The drawings feature Brits' signature snake-like forms, and offer a glimpse into the artist's process towards their final incarnation as sculptures.
