Adrawingaday, earlier sketches

Past sketches

In 2014, before I actually started drawing every day, I drew on some blank stickers occasionally. I can’t exactly remember when. And I actually forgot I drew them! I re-discovered them while I was clearing out some shelves and sorting various papers.

Retrospectively comparing this assortment of sketches to the adrawingaday project, I have no opinions, as yet.

The #adrawingaday project has been continuing on for about six months now, and has a dedicated home on the site. Click here for the full adrawingaday archive.

I also post my daily drawings on Instagram, @kellymarietheartist: https://www.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.
