Colette Lilley
Dates: 1 – 31 August, 2018
Location: 5 Bold Place, Liverpool, L1 9DN
Times: 24/7

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.

Jeans playfully explores life-sculpting’s practical conflict with expression by comically contrasting the dour head of a man who sat long hours for his portrait with the gesturing hand of the artist full of meaning. Accompanying this are 100 drawings that impressively chart the hand’s boundless expressivity.

Viewing: 08:00 – 23:00 daily, from street.

Using a head cast in mould inducing materials and seemingly rude grafitti, Adrian Jeans explores the on-going conundrum of whether a portrait is a replica of a person and a reflection of their character or a physical object with an existence and presence all of its own?

Times: Dawn to 11pm daily (viewing from street)

Over 2000 years ago he developed a theory of political governance which started with aristocracy and inevitably progressed through stages to tyranny.

This exhibition of posters explores those stages and invites the viewer to decide where we are as a society along that journey between the two extremes.

Aristocracy – rule by a few families born to rule – familia supra omnia – family above all.

Timocracy – rule by the worthy and wealthy – pecuniate obedient omnia – money masters all things.

Oligarchy – rule by business and interests behind the scenes – regem comitem me comes regem – you make me a count I will make you a king.

Democracy – rule by the majority but at what point do the ‘rights’ of individuals impact on collective rights? An nesis mi fili quantilla prudential mundus regatur – do you know my son with how little wisdom the world is governed?

Tyranny – rule by a dictator – sic semper tyrannis – thus always to tyrants.

LEARN TO SEE/LEARN TO DRAW is an exhibition that follows Colette’s journey as she explores the process of drawing from the perception that ‘It’s not drawing that has to be learned, it is seeing.’ – Betty Edwards.

Throughout the exhibition Colette will be posting helpful insights on her Instagram and Twitter to guide others in learning to see, inspiring them to pick up their pencils and draw.
