Looking at line art

A NEW exhibition has opened at the David West Gallery, at the Town Mill, in Lyme Regis.

Named Four Show - Thinking Through Line, it shows artefacts and drawing around the theme of the drawn line, describing and mapping the contextual visual and spatiality of the image.

Ben Emmett's large format graphic drawings articulate the intensity of light and dark of wild landscape. The energy of his mark-making describes a latent atmosphere of mystery and rawness gained through time spent walking the land.

Mathew Emmett's work focuses on the phenomenological presence of space and operates between the boundaries of conceptual architecture, art, technology and music.

Oliver Emmett's practice defines the relationship between the interface of art and architecture, exploring the apparatus of the making of three dimensional space by the manipulation of scale through a multitude of drawing techniques and model making.

Michael Emmett's fine art practice and the processes of drawing has initiated the exploration of form and volume in his ceramics, leading to the containment of line and the interiority of its enclosure.

The exhibition runs until Sunday, May 16, with the gallery open from Tuesday to Sunday, 11am until 4pm, plus the bank holiday Monday.
