The TAKT TALK Battle! with John Lord and Clare Thomas (CAN)
Tuesday, October 16, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Takt Academy is happy to present
TAKT TALK BATTLE
(two artist talks- one evening)
with John Lord (UK) and Clare Thomas (CAN)
“Currently my practice involves predominantly drawing using a
variety of mediums including water soluble pens and wax. I have also explored using stencils derived from printed wallpapers which I then distress and produce distorted images. I endeavour to continue with experimentations in a variety of mediums.”
“My current drawings are about the ways individuals and groups of people occupy space. Do we feel comfortable where we are? Are we close to, or distant from, our surroundings and each other? I trace outlines from photocopied photographs onto paper and linen using carbon paper. These outlines form the basis for spare, flat drawings in which information is reduced as much as possible, leaving much of the drawing blank, unoccupied. The viewer is then free to insert their own ideas and imagination into the areas that are missing. In this way, the work is created as much by the viewer’s experience as by my own.”
