Drawing at 139
ANOTHER rewarding exhibition is Fine Drawing at Gallery 139 until June 25. It covers a varied field, from the obsessive detail of Greg Slevin’s fish and Vanessa Lewis’s oak tree to the computerised drawing machine programmed by Matthew Tome, producing delicate, virtually invisible tracery, unnerving messages from the spirit world.
Robyn Werkhoven draws her quirky figures with characteristic assurance. Tony Amidy’s life drawings deploy expressive charcoal. Tanya Matas draws with the sewing machine. Surrealism lives again for Susan Ryman. Jay Muldoon’s ink fantasies grow organically. Melissa Bull applies botanical illustration to clay pots. And there is more.
