Claire Winmill “Abrasions”

June 6, 2018 @ 08:00 - June 20, 2018 @ 17:00

Claire Winmill
My show is made up of mixed-media abstract drawings that explore sickness and physical injury.
It will be held in the Lee Matasi Gallery from June 6-20
The vernissage will be held on Thursday, June 7 from 6:30-8:30

In my work I explore the concepts of sickness and physical injury as topics for creating mixed-media abstract drawings. My method of executing this is through the process of destruction and preservation. Through my process I attempt to give physicality to the turmoil that is experienced, and the struggle that takes place.These drawings attempt to illustrate the relationship between an ailment, and the individual it is affecting; similar to that of a parasite and a host it has attached itself to. My work is meant to represent the ramification that an ailment can have on a physical being, whether it be internal or external.

Dans mon travail, j’explore les concepts de la maladie et des blessures physiques en tant que sujets pour la création de dessins abstraits de techniques mixtes. J’emploie pour ce faire des processus de destruction et de préservation. J’essaie ainsi de donner une physicalité à l’agitation ressentie, à la lutte qui se déroule. Mes dessins tentent d’illustrer la relation entre une affection et l’individu qu’elle affecte, relation semblable à celle d’un parasite avec l’hôte auquel il s’est attaché. Mon travail cherche à représenter les répercussions des affections sur l’être physique, qu’elles soient internes ou externes.
