The practice of London based artist, Becky Allen, explores drawing as a form of meditative catharsis. She channels the movement and energy of repetitive mark-making to create artworks that express a visual record of passage through time. Exploring the slow physicality of creating intricate work through the deep contemplation that the act engenders, Allen presents visual forms of rumination to both express and invoke the spirit of introspection.
Using a rhythmic and measured process, she expresses her fascination with line by employing them meticulously as marks, gestures or traces. Inspired by weaving’s warp and weft, wayfaring paths and the horizon line, her works express the entanglement of line’s manifold associations interwoven throughout human history. Engaging intimately with her materials through this process, she labours to illuminate the invisible properties of her surfaces that arise from organic interactions with natural components. Emerging from this intimacy, is the embodiment of an unpredictable, ethereal aspect that occurs as a profoundly unique dialogue between the artist and her medium.
