Day 349 and notes on an exhibition
by Sketchy on the Detail
The Lowry one to be specific. I usually just sketch some memory aids, partly because I am not good at replicating what is in front of me, but mostly because they never have my favourite pieces as post cards.
Other than being “a squeeze” for the first four rooms, it was a good exhibition at Tate Britain. I liked the patterns that Lowry created in his artwork, that combined with a muted palette made for quite the atmospheric pieces. Very good at conveying emotion; pity we don’t see more of that in contemporary pieces, where concept trumps skill. But don’t get me started on that…
