Physical description
Studio interior is a four panel drawing that combines Senbergs's direct, authoritative graphic mark and his acute powers of observation. He has depicted the interior of his studio in North Melbourne and has often used his working environment as subject matter for drawings. The ordered clutter of Senbergs's studio contains the materials of his profession, other works in various states of completion scattered about the space, favourite objects, furniture, the kitchen and bar areas. Senbergs has used dense black pastel to depict the interior in a bold, powerful line.
