Linda Weil - 'The Mechanical Pencil'
Wednesday 10 October - Sunday 4 November 2018
The world is a clockwork construct as seen through the eye of Linda Weil’s drawings.
Using the simplest and most common drawing implement, the graphite pencil, these freehand yet exacting and precise drawings explore natural and everyday objects with a mechanical bent. A rich, expressive and exhaustive medium, Weil uses the humble graphite pencil (with touches of colour here and there) to explore a vast range of effects in her works. Needle sharp contour lines to soft velvety depths of shading allow her to travel the boundaries between realism and fantasy, creating her own special mechanistic reality.
