  • Title: I Wish I Could Draw
  • Venue: Visual
  • Start Date/Time: 13/04/2018, 11:00
  • Details: Taking a line for a walk’ underpins Bridget Flannery’s approach to drawing. Her workshops explore space and shape through a drawing process using whatever is at hand – pencil, charcoal, paint, twigs, and feathers – while always emphasising keen observation. Bridget Flannery can be described as a painter of nature. Her paintings have an organic relation with certain specific areas and places – bogs, strands, cliff faces and rock formations. However, she make no attempt to reproduce the surface appearance of places but like other contemporary artists she abstracts without being an abstractionist. Her forms are closely akin to natural forms and shapes, but while their genesis may be in the natural world, they are largely autonomous and follow an internal logic of form and colour brought about by detailed looking, drawing and photography.
