‘Contextual Line Gardens’ abstract iPad drawings 2020 online exhibition From 1st Nov 2020 - Expands ongoing 2021
“Thanks for taking a look, this is a living exhibition and so I’ll be sharing more works and thoughts here over the coming days and weeks. You can see individual works here. -Andy”
About the exhibition “I think the spaces we live and work in have never felt more important. I’ve always been enlivened amidst the interplay of a drawing and the space it occupies, perhaps more so since my first exhibition in 2013. I think when skilfully considered, drawings and space evoke emotion - together they somehow affirm the human spirit. This ethereal joy if you like is not something that is always experienced in a gallery space. ‘Contextual Line Gardens’ continues with my affinity for drawings and spaces, this time with drawings, homes and work spaces. These are my first ‘Contextual Line Gardens' - six drawings in six spaces.”
About Andy “Hello, from the start in 2012 I’ve been working outdoors in the landscape, one-to-one with my subject, but this year everything has changed. Initially the lockdown restrictions were a huge frustration to my creative process. For a few weeks I really didn't know what to do, I struggled to make any drawings. But in response I completely changed the way I work. During lockdown I've been making some new abstract iPad drawings, reconstructing nature, line by line - a few simple lines about space, flowers and foliage as I imagine them. And here are the first works, with more to follow.”
