Day 43 and simplification
by Sketchy on the Detail
The penultimate Gallery as Studio session at the Tate Modern today, which was all about “drawing out ideas” using negative space, simplified lines, collages and analysis. The idea is to create a minimalist “conversation” with the artwork.
As soon as they start talking about conversations, my brain freezes…I have no idea what they mean by that. Give me a set of instructions and I am happy, tell me to go off and have a dialogue with some art and I think you are from another planet.
I know that I am going to these workshops to get me out of my comfort zone…I just wasn’t aware of how much kicking and screaming would be accompanied by it.
