An exhibition of drawings in fine pen and watercolour.
A line drawn quickly will be read quickly: The eye moving as the hand did; the hand following the eye over the body. If my eye should pause, so will my hand. Your eye is sure to follow. Imagine the model's body as your body, engage your senses with the handling of the materials. Once permitted to look, it is difficult not to muse upon the thoughts and feelings of the sitter. A model may be composing tomorrow's 'to-do' list or meditating. I find it impossible to see a dispossessed physical form and my mind wanders. The placement of fingers, the narrowing of eyes, the upturned mouth, the tension in muscles, all suggest something more. Rarely does a full narrative appear but a tangible emotional framework on which the work can hang.
