This month’s Drawing Room was jointly led by Ailie Rutherford and Emma Bowen. As usual Sharon Quigley ran the session, and it was held in the Scottish Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh, taking inspiration from the current exhibition of Louise Bourgeois.
Since Ailie previously led a session on communicating with plants who could tell the future (check it out!), and Emma previously led sessions utilising sound to feed the creative process (sessions led by Emma), I knew the session would be a little crazy! Here’s me drawing with charcoal wired up for sound:
So, what didn’t we have in this session? No bones, no drums, no future-seeing plants this time. But we did have some birthday party fodder, suitable for mine and Sharon’s birthday that day:
A glitter ball:
And no party is complete without twirling ribbon – this is Ailie recreating Louise Bourgeois’s paintings in the exhibition:
From the sound and light of these items I produced these experimental pieces:
Culminating with this larger piece on a roll of textured lining:
As always, an interesting experience at the Drawing Room. I’ll leave you with some more in-session photos, courtesy of Emma. All photos in this post (c) her.
