Adrawingaday sketches, number three

More from #adrawingaday

I haven’t  missed that many days – I crashed off a bicycle one night, and that was the only day I have not posted, I think.

I read somewhere that if you do something for thirty days in a row then in becomes a habit. It is a number that has clung to me, the idea that changing one thing for thirty days in a row will make that thing permanent. That sounds too good to be true.

So far, this project where I do one drawing per day has seen me sharpen up certain techniques. That is the only noticeable effect after thirty days, from my perspective.

I wonder how it ends.

The current practice is to post daily a single photo to Instagram, leaving room here for extras and B-sides. https://instagram.com/kellymarietheartist/

About kellymarietheartist

I am an artist who, up until recently, was living and exhibiting within Toowoomba and the greater Granite Belt district. I have since packed up and left Australia, and am currently living and working in England. My work engages the craft involved in handmaking within a contemporary art context. I am drawn to the physicality of repetitive textile processes, and this is transcribed though the tactile quality of my forms. In particular, processes such as crochet, sewing and rug making serve as a proxy for growth within my personal environment. Many of my works imitate situations in nature, and they form organically as I create each individual piece, each addition both a continuation and re-enforcement of its predecessors. I enjoy using recycled materials for many of my works. Using crochet and other textile techniques to do this is an important part of my work as it celebrates a tradition of craft that has historically been relegated to 'women's work', with all the negative connotations that entails.
