International Arts Movement is pleased to present “Seeking Silence”, drawings by Lindsay Kolk. The show will run from September 1st through October 15th 2012.

Fragile pink tissue, originally settled between leaves of precious gold and here bearing occasional remnants of that utility; pages bound for disposal but carefully collected. The line drawn many times over. Drawing as an act of endurance, repetitive gestures bearing the ecstasies of immersion and the messiness of tired boredom. Natural distortions of an unsteady hand and purposeful disruptions of the pure, straight line: intentional arcs of the pen then gradually made straight only to be made crooked again. Work and a method of working that are always seeking the quietly focused spaces in this noisy place.

If you attach yourself to Nature, to the simple and small in her, which hardly anyone sees, but which can so unexpectedly turn into the great and the immeasurable, if you have this love for what is slight and try quite simply, as a servant, to win the confidence of what appears to you poor, then everything will become easier for you, more uniform and somehow more reconciling, not perhaps in the understanding, which holds back in amazement, but in your innermost consciousness, watchfulness and knowledge.[1]
