In its capacity to be experimental territory, drawing offers a space where different states of mind can be explored. Each of the artists here has taken the practice eyond the realm of obvious observation or recording into something more internal, psychological and uncertain.
Shannon Williamson describes her drawing as “navigating this very intimate and personal space that we can’t access – our internal self.” Here, she uses different kinds of mark making – scientific notations, anatomical drawings, erasures and urgent scribbles resembling biometric readouts – to show how psychological experiences and anxiety are expressed through the body.
