Blind drawing at Godolphin

Groundwork volunteer Leah Boote has been making blind drawings of her time spent with the Christina Mackie installation at Godolphin. Blind drawing, Leah explains, is essentially drawing without looking at the paper.


“I tend to blind draw most of my work because I enjoy the freedom of it”, Leah explains. “Most of my works have many layers as well” – in this instance “with ‘reportage’ drawings on top. I love trying to get a feeling of a place and I thought it would be fun recording comments this way too”.
Above, Leah’s blind drawings are layered and overlapped with visitors’ reactions to the Christina Mackie Installation.
