Life drawing session on Saturday 12 January 2019 6 – 9pm
Broken… Broke… Cry… Goodbye. Lie, Lay, Laid.
Beautiful Burdens is a collaboration…
…whispered by the strokes of a brush, in the colour of memories… shaped by emotion.
Established Derbyshire artists Lor Bird, Sara Brighty and John McDonald mark the closing of their exhibition, Inspired Reflections, by holding a live drawing session. This completes their journey, which has held up a mirror to life, and appropriately ends the exhibition by asking others to participate in the act of what art means; what it means to observe and explore each other.
The live drawing event will take place at Déda on Saturday 12 January from 6 – 9pm. All three artists will be drawing and taking turns in being life models and will be on hand to discuss their work. The event is open to anyone who wants to join in, or watch, but art equipment is not provided, so please bring your own equipment. For more details email firstname.lastname@example.org
Lor Bird, a sensuous and sensitive colourist, is known for her glowing landscapes, both figurative and semi-abstract, as well as resonant still life work. We look forward to seeing how this award-winning painter translates her expressive and subconscious responses to her environment, into portraiture.
John McDonald, who paints with unashamed passion and pathos, has received international acclaim for Butterfly Cry, a series of portraits of Frida Kahlo. John’s background in theatre is evident in his ambitious installation, and paintings where a staged scene is set, and a dramatis personae is created.
Sara Brighty’s work ranges from ink drawing and painting to sculpture, performance and film, but always with a physicality which imbues forms with emotions. Sara, who has worked with Anthony Gormley, is an artist both poetic and visceral, for whom bodies and objects are inseparable from meaning.
A room with many views, by a trio without choice, and Art as a voice.
Work steeped in darker moments…
