Project Ability is proud to present ‘Voices on paper’, a solo exhibition of works on paper by ReConnect artist Angela McLauchlin.
“Art is a totally unique bird’s eye view perspective, it comes from a vantage position, and everyone has the best spot in the house.
I believe art is an adventure, a joy of the mind, something that should get our old grey matter into 7th gear, just take it up a notch and most definitely stimulate a conversation of some sorts. It gets us all talking and sharing our points of view.
As an artist – a person who paints, draws, puts things on paper and other media – I get asked often of a finished piece of work ‘What exactly were you thinking when you were creating this particular piece?’ I never really like to say, because I don’t consider my opinions as greatly important, however I always ask: ‘What were you thinking when you were looking at this piece?’ I always am intrigued to know and hear it, far more interesting and exciting for myself. That’s what the arts are about: the people that see it right. It isn’t art without the eyes that gaze.
We don’t need to be clever, we are always clever about art: our opinions are never wrong. Let’s explore, speak our mind, and give others a different perspective. A piece of art can invoke a feeling, a thought, an emotion like no other. It’s a living, breathing piece of a soul, a psyche that brings us home to rest.
Don’t you just love art, and having our beautiful voices recorded on paper? How very wonderful.”
