Josie Dick

Location: London

My ideas and work have constantly been involved in mark-making and the process of drawing. I have become increasingly engaged in creating drawings that are focused on form and the space they inhabit. I am interested in installing materials in certain ways to create something that I feel is a drawing. I use paper as my main material as well as clay, chalk, pastel and more recently film and light. My work focuses strongly on method and action and aims invite the viewer to engage and interact physically.
