Arriving just after lunch, we had a look around the gallery space at the current exhibition on the ground floor: “Telling Tales” by Anna Noël.
We did a series of exercises based on the works in the room: exploring the way the eye is drawn from one item to the next, we mapped out the way we personally saw the exhibition. We were encouraged to look at pieces we particularly liked, and to draw them or from them; then, to analyse the use of colour in both an overall and more targeted sense. I was particularly keen to use watercolours to do this, as the sculptures had something ethereal about them – as if seen briefly from above the surface of a lake, and were to be washed away by the flick of a fish’s tail, leaving ripples of already dispersing colour.
Following this we had a tour of the space. -‘s folded paper drawings were of particular interest to me as they were reminiscent of landscapes.
