Evelyn Sinclair's Meditation exhibition draws on life
A NEW solo exhibition by exciting figurative artist Evelyn Sinclair has just opened at The Brewhouse.
Kendal-based Evelyn’s work is primarily paintings and drawings in ink, acrylic, charcoal and pastel, with occasional 3D installation pieces. The focus of her art has always been drawing people - a passion she initially acquired while doing her degree at Glasgow School of Art and has developed over several years in life drawing sessions.
Evelyn says when drawing from life, she moves into an entirely other headspace, where all other daily concerns dissolve away.
“My interaction with the ink becomes instinctive,” explains Evelyn, whose a member of the popular Green Door co-operative. “It’s about achieving a balance between allowing the medium to do random and exciting things, but exercising enough control to create the image and mood I want."
Evelyn’s work has been inspired by the theme of how our pasts, change, chance, fate and beliefs can shape our identities, our well-being and our futures.
Meditation is a recent group of large ink paintings which explore the concept of letting go of all the pressures and worries of everyday life and attaining a free, calm and more holistic existence.
The exhibition runs until October 30 at The Brewhouse arts space located at Burgundys on Lowther Street, Kendal.
