NATURE OF SEEING

‘The day is coming when a carrot, freshly observed, will start a revolution.’ Paul Cezanne.

When we look, how much do we really see? Our habit is is to observe with our mind’s ideas of how things look, and when we draw, we tend to draw that which we think we see. The result is that we can call ourselves bad drawers when in fact the truth is that we’re bad see-ers. Yet, whether we have drawn before or not, we have it in us to create lines of such awe and beauty that can leave us amazed and astounded. To explore beyond the surface is nothing less than to discover our authentic response and the true essence of both the object of our attention and ourselves.

I invite you to bring a couple of 2b pencils and an open mind. And please don’t worry, no carrots will be harmed…

‘Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see.’ John Ruskin.
