Surrealist Drawing

18 Oct


A few weeks ago I did some live drawing at a spoken word event at the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, with Rufus Mufasa, David Pitt and Eleanor Shaw amongst others. I normally work directly from life, but this time I let my hands be influenced by the rhythm and meaning of the words and music and just drew. This is similar to surrealist drawing and really pushed me out of my comfort zone. I did this – almost – automatic drawing while listening to one of the contributor’s story about her nervous breakdown. Her words were graphically visual.

    This is such a strong response to what you heard. We so often forget to draw with the heart and hands and not just the eyes.

      Yes, I get bogged down in responding to what I SEE, not to what I hear or feel.
