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).

Husb and I went to the late opening at the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery last night where artist in residence Rhodri Davies was performing on a range of strange instruments. I scribbled with a biro (ballpoint) pen and found myself almost mesmerised, drawing automatically to the music.

Rhodri Davies

 

Husb and I went to the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery earlier today to catch Rhodri Davies doing his artist’s talk. I like to hear how other artists develop their work and of course, it’s an opportunity for me to have a scribble as well. Rhodri’s art practice is completely different from mine but I like to be challenged and pushed out of my comfort zone. Today he spoke about his work involving harps (telyn) and during the talk he played a short film that featured one of his musical compositions. I found myself completely absorbed and drawing automatically to the sounds, particularly on the beard. I used a biro (ballpoint) into my very small Laura Ashley sketchbook.
