Music And Mark Making

18 Feb

Rhodri Davies 2

Husb and I went to the “Gallery At Night” opening at the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery where artist in residence Rhodri Davies was performing on a range of strange instruments, including cymbals arranged on the floor (above) and adapted harps. I quickly got into the zone and scribbled automatically, allowing the music to dictate my mark-making. This is a recent development for me as I normally work in silence, not even listening to the radio. I drew these with a biro (ballpoint) pen into my small cloth-backed sketchbook (approximately A6 size).

    I love this technique

      It was quite spontaneous. I became completely absorbed in the music. It was very avant garde, the sort you either go along with or you walk out. It was interesting giving myself up to it and not focusing on drawing technique.

    I love the style of these, Rosie. I think I will have to try it out for myself. Nice work. You can almost see the sound of the music. Hypnotic.

      Thank you. The music was very avant garde and the sort you can immerse yourself in and the drawing became quite automatic ☺

      It’s encouraged me to find other different music that I wouldn’t normally listen to and see what happens….

    The drawings look very musical, dynamic. And it sounds like you had a wonderful time being there. You go to such interesting places.

      I’m lucky. It’s a small city but very cultural, poor but the arts are thriving 😀

    The scribble drawing is very effective.

    I like how solid these are.

      Thanks. I was able to spend quite a bit of time building the drawings as he remained fairly still.
