A Digression!

I know I haven’t written any thing about the Drawing Room II show. But I did go to the Private View and it is an interesting show with a lot of work to look at. Its free entry on Saturday 7th February so don’t miss the chance! There is some inyriguing work from UWE which stretched the bounds of definitions of drawing and the ‘hang ‘ of the Methuen Gallery under the curatorship of Graham Woodruff , Director of Bristol Drawing School, created a beautifully clean space which allowed the drawings to speak for themselves.

This has nothing to with Cill Rialaig now but I am temporarily moving away from this work to get involved in a new project for a little while which is based at Exeter Castle curated by Exeter Artspace. The cells in the basement of the castle are going to be the venue for Transition, an exhibition of mostly video, sound and light installations which respond to the location. I will be making drawings in response to the space which will focus of the restriction of movement – the holding cells measure 6′ x 3′ – and the lack of natural daylight and the marking of time.
