Day 8 – the last bits

Originally posted on Colette Lilley at Arena:
Prep, pervious work I feel like I have learnt a lot from the residency, it has given me chance to really look at my process. I need to write, to express my thoughts to get them out of my mind before I am able to focus. That writing…

Day 7 – from thinking to feeling

Originally posted on Colette Lilley at Arena:
My drawings too a different approach today, I was no longer thinking as much but looking. I was also looking from a different perspective; I was not just looking at the shapes, relationship and negative space but rather feeling it, drawing it from my sensations. It was like…

Days off

Originally posted on Colette Lilley at Arena:
I’m having a couple of days away from the Gallery as real life takes over. I do think breaks, even with a deadline are good and necessarily to the creative process. It gives the mind a chance to relax and let things come to it, insights. Then ill return to it with…

Day 6 – my thoughts

My drawings started a bit all over the place to day, I had things on my mind. I had so many thoughts clouding up my mind, I could focus, I needed to get them out. So I did. I started to write on the walls, automatically letting it out,…

Day 3 – understanding my thinking, collecting the pieces

Originally posted on Colette Lilley at Arena:
Starting was defiantly the hardest part, once I drew my first line/written my first sentence, the fear dropped away and my work started to flow. I was a little unsure of what to expect, it is all automatic, flowing out. It became pretty clear that I was exploring…

Day 2 – getting organised

Originally posted on Colette Lilley at Arena:
Day 2 It is quite a daunting prospect when starting anything new, a new project a new drawing, the whiteness off the paper or walls in my case. Especially with the thought of having to show my work and the tight deadline. Half of me wants to rush in…

Day 1 – the ritual

Originally posted on Colette Lilley at Arena:
Purpose of blog It seems a bit self indulgent writing a blog about what I get up to, I don’t know if anyone will read it or be interested in what I get up to arena, or if what I do will be anything I want to show.…
