Drawn at the RWA

IMG_2042asusibancroftI took a deep breath – sometimes you just have to give something a try… and I am stunned and so unbelievably excited to say that I have work in the current juried Exhibition Drawn at the Royal West of England Academy

The RWA text states: Drawn, continuing to raise the profile of drawing as both an autonomous discipline and an interdisciplinary tool. As a means of communication and navigation, drawing has taken on a universality and accessibility unlike any other medium. It is a building block of creativity, key to the visualisation and translation of ideas and practices, fundamental in making, doing, testing, designing, thinking, playing and living.

The pieces are a triptych of work – combining free machine drawing, pen and hand stitch and are about hand washing in hospital –  Mending My Ways

The Exhibition is on till June 7th and accompanies a truly inspiring collection to view – Drawing On 

I blogged about it here too on the Brunel Broderers site!

this one – for the joy of making….
