curated by Michael Bracewell
Made in a dense layering of media that includes pencil, scratching, rubber stamp, make-up, collage and staining, Anne-Laure Zevi’s drawings are intricate, eerie and compelling. They depict places, figures and events of profound psychological and atmospheric intensity. Small in scale, pushing figuration to near abstraction, they combine monochrome, scarred or delicately worked surface, tonai colour and shading. The antique frames selected by the artist are integrai to each work, heightening a sense of memento. They have the air of drawings made in dreams, as records of sites deep within the sub-conscious – simultaneously familiar and unreal.
A catalogue of the exhibition will be forthcoming with a text by Jennifer Higgie.
