Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex
“Drawing represents for me the most honest gesture, the moment of truth when the paper and I breathe together, the line offering in its simplicity many variable forms of expression.”
With her expansive spatial drawings, Monika Grzymala has developed a unique, unusual approach to contemporary drawing and installation art. Raumzeichnung Reflection, the work she is creating site specifically for Fabrica will use more than eight kilometers of silver-mirrored tape to transform, re-imagine and re-draw Fabrica’s interior.This ephemeral and temporary installation responds to the theme of a mutable and changing landscape, using drawing in its most expanded form to explore our psychological and aesthetic relationship to the landscapes that surround us.
“The work is a translation of the time I’ve spent in the space.”
