Season Of Drawing
Practitioner in Residence : Royal Museums Greenwich
Nicole Mollett is a socially engaged artist whose primary medium is drawing. As part of her Season of Drawing residency she has been making drawings in response to The Van De Veldes: Greenwich, Art and The Sea exhibition at the Queen House. Over the course of three months Nicole has delivered ten drawing workshops with public visitors and special groups including a Refugee and Migrant women’s group.
Nicole is working in collaboration with RGM staff to create a new drawing creative resource book inspired by the Queen’s House. The limited edition publication will be freely offered to museum visitors to encourage both adults and young people to explore the architecture and art through a series of creative drawing prompts created by RGM staff members.
Nicole’s Drawing Residency statement:
“I will investigate our complex relationship with water and the sea, looking at the importance water has in shaping our lives and society, and how access to water and our ability to navigate the oceans has played a key role in civilisations globally.
I will run a series of free public workshops testing out different methods of drawings. I will draw from the Van de Velde collection, looking at how the artists use ink to describe the waves, and observing how they describe human behaviour at sea.
Using research gathered from the collection, I plan to make a long scroll-like drawing which embodies the monumental forces of nature, and reconnects the viewer to a sense of awe and wonder for the sea.”
