Exhibitions Faces by Cally Trench
A unique exhibition of portraits by artist, Cally Trench, opens at Bucks County Museum on 15 July.
Cally Trench’s Faces are an ever-growing collection of life-size ink drawings of the faces of her friends and family. The drawings are based on photographs taken of each person, lying on their back and looking directly at the camera. The resulting disembodied heads stare coolly at the viewer as if from their bed of sickness or death; gravity pulls back their flesh, and they look as if they were flying off the paper into the wind.
From a distance, these faces seem to observe the viewer and wait for an approach. Close to, the individual ink marks, dots, lines, squiggles and cross hatching become obvious. Cally perceives her task of translating photographs into ink drawings as similar to the challenges met by engravers in the 18th and 19th century in translating oil paintings into engravings.
Don’t miss the opportunity to watch Cally as she demonstrates the process of creating one of her unique portraits. She will be working on a new portrait in the gallery on Saturday 29th July and Monday 31st July from 11am – 12.30 and 1 – 3.30pm. Just drop in to see her and she will be delighted to answer questions about her work.
