Articles with Julia Hutton


Drawing the intangible present

“Sometimes there are ‘breakthrough moments’ in the process of drawing, when through patient reflection new considerations about the subject emerge and move the work on to new and unexpected forms. There is a subtle point where the subconscious and conscious meet, and a drawing can then either self-consciously collapse or discover a fresh vitality and ‘truth’. The latter is what I try to find.”
