Draw Draw Draw
Dates: 1 – 31 August, 2018
Location: 5 Bold Place, Liverpool, L1 9DN
The next artist showing at 5 Bold Place, as part of Art in Windows is Colette Lilley with her exhibition Draw Draw Draw. The exhibition which is viewed from street level, shall run from the 1st September until the 30th September 2018.
The exhibition focuses on Colette’s use of observational drawing as a form of mindfulness. Studying the form and texture of different body parts that she sees in her everyday life gives her an awareness of detail and helps to ground her in the present moment, helping her to compose her erratic thoughts.
The presence of words in the work shows the conversation between the abstract and logical process of drawing, and how the two together can tell a story and give form to her thoughts that can otherwise defy being identified.
Through drawing these images she learns about herself and the subject as it gives her insights into her thoughts and feelings that she needs to address. The paper is the safe space that she needs and the drawings are the means she needs to achieve this.
