Adrawingaday project fifteen; the mundane

A study of the mundane

This a collection of adrawingaday sketches has a theme; mundane, common, everyday items. It was an interesting exercise, each page was an idea as simple as things-that-are-desserts, papery-items and different-fish. Challenging, too.

I used these run-of-the-mill items like cell phones and glasses to focus. Although I have seen each item many times from every angle, streamlining the idea of it, then translating it into a recognisable collection of lines could be tricky at times. Balancing every new drawing against the rest of the illustrations already on the page was a bit of fun also!

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.
