A World of my own Creation – Mark Wigan is back with us for a week!
Previously unseen drawings from the Mark Wigan Archive

26th June – 5th July 2017

Drawing is an integral part of Mark Wigans practice it provides him with the freedom to improvise, and visualise ideas which are often later translated into paintings. The drawings are preparatory works for paintings and also original works in their own right. His free flowing mark making combines elements of deliberate control and elements of chance at the same time as he moves from the conscious mind to the unconscious one to make a world of his own creation. Wigan works across a diverse range of mediums including felt tip pens, paper, biro, coloured pencils, ink, compressed charcoal, tape, collage and pastels which he applies to paper, floors and walls. His recent drawings are characterised by a move to abstraction they teem with biomorphic forms, and are intuitive, playful and intriguing. Through the manipulation of lines, mass and space the new works explore the relationship between, mark making, dance and music.
