Drawing Breath, 2020 - 2021 by Sue Mann

Sue Mann

Graphite drawings and cut out on pergamenata paper

Selection exhibited: Definitions of Drawing, Sunny Bank Mills Gallery, September to November 2021

In quiet moments of architectural light and shadow, buildings reveal themselves to us, they breathe, and invite us to be still and listen.

Following research that explored these ideas, focus of enquiry transferred to the home. Through documenting and responding to moments of light and shadow from around the home, a new body of work emerged. Each work comprises two graphite drawings (one cut out) on translucent paper that interact with each other when activated by natural light in the space.

Alt-terior, 25th September 2021 - 18th October 2021 by Lucy Bevin

Lucy Bevin

Location: The James Hockey Gallery, University for The Creative Arts, Falkner Rd, Farnham GU9 7DS.

Alt-terior is an exhibition of work by MA Fine Art Graduates 2021. The show presents a selection of works that mark the completion of the Artists' research and practice during their MA Programme. This alternative iteration of their original Graduation shows has provided an opportunity to create new forms, make new connections and, for my own work shown here, to create new thresholds within the work which allows the viewer to enter.
