Marking Movements - new drawings by Catherine Flexen and Craig Staff

Flexen, C. and Staff, C. (2006) Marking Movements - new drawings by Catherine Flexen and Craig Staff. Exhibit at: Marking Movements. Cheltenham Museum and Art Gallery, 28 January - 11 March 2006.

Item Type: Show/Exhibition
Abstract: Keen to support artists working today, the Art Gallery & Museum invited Catherine Flexen and Craig Staff to create work specifically for Gallery 13. This exhibition of new drawing explores the way in which the body is involved as the maker of marks, rather than as the subject of representation. For both artists, the form that their drawings eventually take is a result of a lengthy process of physical activity, although in very contrasting ways. Whereas for Flexen drawing is a response to the physical motion of walking in the Cotswolds, for Staff it is a consideration of the fragility of human concentration and the body's capabilities
