These five drawings are a collaboration between Lindsay Falk and six students from Nose Creek Middle School. Each student was encouraged to think creatively about the ways in which they could explore content and how drawing can be a visible way of communicating. Over the course of a month the drawings were exchanged back and forth between student and artist. Each addition to the drawin inspired the ideas that followed. Throughout the project it became evident that each work is a unique and intimate conversation between artist and image that explores powerful themes such as love, depression, memory and hope through a playful perspective.

 

The series was inspired by the idea of exploring subject matter through two very different perceptions on the world. Lindsay wanted to work with middle school students since this was the same age in which she first started creating cut-outs, drawings and exploring with various collage based techniques. These are still the same techniques that inform her current artistic practices.

 

 

Special thanks to Julie Herman for making this project possible.

 

These works will be part of an exhibtion featuring work by Lindsay Falk and Jaclyn Blackwood.
