Lucid Dreaming by Bar Angello
On TheWall@theGallery Lucid Dreaming by Bar Angello
13 April – 14 May 2010
The works exhibited are reproduced from a composition of drawings that are made with pencils pens on thick white paper. The surface is carefully reworked and the repetition across the surface plays an important role in the creating atmosphere, intensity and movement.
The traditional format contrasts with the use of felt tip pens and the artist states that the intensity of the image relates to the absence of mark making on first seeing the paper. Each mark made highlights or conceals the previous layer of marks. The image becomes a playful rhythm, often evolving into tranquil forms with their own narrative. Bar Angello describes the experience as her hand being led and ‘finding the picture that my eyes can’t see until it’s drawn’.
“This exhibition is dedicated to the memory of my beloved father, Joseph John Angello and to my beautiful mother, Barbara Ann”.
