Drawing – Paper Cut-outs – Stitching

Gillian Lavery’s project in Onishi was inspired by the paper lanterns that litter the town. Initially uncertain of their use or meaning Lavery took to drawing the lanterns using a blind continuous line drawing technique. This approach allows a focused drawing period that emphasizes time and place above the act of representation. The repeated periods of drawing the lanterns have enabled her to navigate the town and gain a level of familiarity in a place of so many new and different things. These initial drawings were then developed into paper cuts outs, stitched drawings and multiple paper collages that have a map-like quality.

「紙と糸を使った絵」

私は、さまざまな材料(障子紙に墨やインク、糸)を使用して絵と刺繍で作品を作っています。

また、私はそれぞれの材料の特徴についても研究しています。例えば、紙に描きやすいものと板に描きやすいもの、それぞれで表現できるものが違います。

今回は、鬼石の街中にある灯篭をモチーフにした絵を描きました。鬼石の街中を照らし、人を導く存在である灯篭に興味を持ちました。
