Line/Extended Exhibition and online essay response

Line/Extended has been open for 4 weeks now. The opening reception on the 17th October involved a short speech and Q&A with exhibiting artists Rosana Antolí, Andrea V Wright and myself. Artist Jane Grisewood was not able to join in with the Q&A as Jane was otherwise engaged… performing her ‘Blind Drawing’ in the Gallery for the duration of the opening. In Line/Extended, I am exhibiting anti-form works ‘you will miss me when I go… and ‘Waisted/Wasted’, from my Offering series 2012-2019.

Dr Barbara Brownie, Associate Dean of School and Lecturer in Visual Communication at the University of Hertfordshire, has written an essay responding to Line/Extended; Material doodles and drawing through space. 

Line/Extended continues until 20 December 2019
