Dipping Your Toes In

In this feature, Ambit wanted to emulate the experience of visiting Cousin’s London studio in print form. The studio wall which was splattered with paint became the backdrop for viewing recent paintings. Piles of drawings at various scales, were available to be rummaged through, pulled out and discussed.
