‘…and a half empty glass of water for my pessimistic friend’ – doodles by Grant Jack

Saturday, 17th August, 5:00 pm - Sunday, 18th August, 5:00 pm

Doodles by Grant Jack, featuring works by students from Hamilton North School
 
Opening Preview: Saturday August 17 – 5pm
Exhibition Dates: August 17 to September 8 – viewing by appointment
 
Based in Cambridge New Zealand, Grant develops pictures through automatic drawing (doodling)
“We teach children how to draw by showing them how to make things appear realistic, well rendered, and in perspective. When in truth, their original vision was better!”, says artist Grant Jack.
 
Art perceived as doodling has been viewed as a poor (homeless?) cousin to the other visual arts, or as a means to their end. Devalued due to its apparent naivety or hasty conception.
In ‘…and a half glass of water for my pessimistic friend, we can see a range of paintings, drawings and digital prints, invested in a process of drawing organically, without preconception of what the viewer might be looking for in a work of art.
