‘Processes: observational drawings’ is the first of a series of exhibitions exploring different artistic practices and their process. The pop up exhibition shall look at the work of Colette Lilley and Sarah Jane Richards, whose art practice incorporates observational drawings but each have their own subject and motive but are tied together through the focus of drawing.
Sarah Jane’s drawings are the expressions from her long walks in the countryside ‘I paint and draw to explore the things I see and how I feel. I am inspired by exploring the environment through long solitary walks and observations of changes in nature over time.’ Whilst Colette’s drawings, repetitive and almost obsessive in nature are tools to help her be present, and to understand herself and reality. The exhibition, which is Arena Studios and Gallery’s first show since the revival of the gallery, brings these two different ways of working together.
