Holly Drewett

“My art reflects deep discourse between nature, intuition and learning which I explore through a diverse range of media and techniques. Motivated through experimentation I challenge my abilities through exploring different materials and make new discoveries with my hands. Fibonacci, optical illusions and the architectural structures of nature inspire me.”

Holly's practice is predominately one of drawing. It is the intuitive gesture and process of drawing which really engages her.

She is interested in the immediate translation of sensory experiences that arise when the hierarchy of knowledge is shifted, allowing other senses to rise in a otherwise visually dominant culture. Holly investigates the choreography of the body in relationship to the process of making; interested in the dialogue between internal state and external surrounding.

There is immediacy in the execution, forming a record of instinctive gestures in a reaction to sound or other sensory input. There is a tension between a spontaneous act and that of the edit. It is a practice about a state of becoming, a place of instability. It considers the acquisition and communication of knowledge and processing of thought.
