Like so many drawings in Drawing Biennial 2015,  artist duo Cullinan Richards' CE 235 2015 packs into an A4 sheet of paper a myriad ideas and multiple references. The work is an assemblage generated from a life drawing session: the contingency of the studio situation is conveyed through the line drawing of a male torso, juxtaposed with the Daily Mirror dramatic front page plane crash story (the number of the plane provides the work’s title) and the composition is anchored by a track-suit clad crotch. Cullinan and Richards are a dynamic duo who in their studio in Vyner Street, east London, present the work of other artists and their own work in the guise of an Italian grocery store.  Future projects include a show at Eastside Projects in Birmingham.
