Medium: Archival pen on wood
Size: 48" x 60"
Artist Statement:Returning to their meditative pen drawing practice, the Broadbent Sisters have formed hypnotic images of illuminated forests in their exhibition ‘Blue Garden’. Enraptured by the layered complexity of natural forms, the Sisters have created a series that stitches together a narrative of ritual, mystery, and nature's consciousness. The repetitive strokes of pen marking become a meditation, forming mystical landscapes. This ritualized, mindful act of creation offers the viewer a more in-depth awareness of the vast wonderment of the fertile forest floor. Side by side, the Sisters symbiotically draw together, in absence of a specific trajectory, allowing the images to organically unfold like a garden.
