Contemporary artist Johanna Bolton is currently doing a residency at the Borough Road Gallery art store. You can follow her as she researches and develops a project for the gallery this fall.
Bomberg wrote that ‘the virility of drawing lies in the immediate necessity to make decisions- with it departs the fears and the funk...’
I think this quality is very much evident in the decisive fast impasto lines in the art of the Borough Group.
Bomberg also wrote “I approach drawing solely for structure” - I will try the same but from the other side, as a sculptor looking for the instruction for structure in the drawings.
This week I am buying armature wire and working at drawing out those structural lines into 3-dimensions again.
