This annual exhibition is the principle activity of The Discerning Eye, an educational charity established in the UK in 1990, to encourage a wider understanding and appreciation of the visual arts and to stimulate debate about the place and purpose of art in our society, and the contribution each one of us can make to its development.
Of her exhibited work, Isolde says, ‘These drawings are part of a large series of works on paper made from chance starting points and experimental surfaces. People, animals and ambiguous spaces are recurrent themes and although narratives can easily be found, they are just a by-product of the process. The joy of making these drawings is never knowing what’s going to happen and who or what will appear’.
Born in 1962, educated in Southend and Cornwall, Isolde has worked in industry and education, written books about ponies and taught at Falmouth School of Art since 1986, most recently on the BA(Hons) Drawing Degree. Isolde’s drawing practise is broad, encompassing the detailed recording of natural subjects and an extensive series of drawings based loosely on the phenomena of pareidolia. Her current research interests explore the interface between drawing and writing.
The exhibition will be open to the public from Thursday 13 November until Sunday 23 November at The Mall Galleries, London SW1, 10am-5pm daily. Admission is free and all works are for sale.
