surrealists stuck at home

On St Andrew’s night (Andrzejki) I participated in a Surrealists Stuck At Home workshop ran by Luisa-Maria MacCormack and Philip Webb Gregg (lots of double letters, I know) from the London Drawing Group. Philip writes for the Dark Mountain magazine, studied English lit and creative writing at the Cambridge School of Art, and generally, he writes. Luisa is an artist and gives lectures on feminist art history at LDG.

The session was composed of a number of quick exercises (and lots of nice chatting) with paper, scissors, pen, and markers. It was a lot of fun and here’s what I produced.

Accidental poem composed of written fragments cut out at random
(from a book on Robert and James Adam).
The drawings are random objects from my room.
A poem made by markering out random fragments (from a book on Robert and James Adam)
My room, sketched from four different angles on one sheet of paper.
Materials: pencil, brown and grey pencils, red pen.
A composition of fragments of two surrealist paintings, one by Magritte and one by someone else (it included a scary green gnome), before applying colour.

I’d recommend that kind of session to everyone and anyone, the entry was by donation so you can give as much as you can and want.
