Annual exhibition selected by judging panel.
A few of the drawings and paintings I particularly liked and responded to.
A pair of graphite drawings by Anny Evason. Beautifully drawn showing the full diversity of marks available using just one medium. As I am presently struggling with my own drawing I was awed by the expertise of these strong and evocative scenes.
“I make drawings as finished work, not just as preparation for something else. I find the process of drawing direct, spontaneous, fluid. The act itself is way of thinking. I aim for that elusive equilibrium between the mark and the iconography.” annyevason.co.uk
Rachel Adams – Cup of Possibility, First They Come, The Passenger.
I particularly like the use of flat colour and tonal blocks in these paintings. The way the paintings evoke memories, photographic reminiscences of her life.
Sheila Morrow – Hand Embroidery
This is actually deep red stitching taken from a 2 minute sketch. I like the way the spontaneity of the drawing has stayed true in this hand worked piece.
