Line Work#1 (2019), paper water colour triptych

Line Works is an exhibition of Phaptawan Suwannakudt  and Sue Pedleys’ collaborative drawings plus drawings made individually.

Sue and Phaptawan have been collaborating on a series of layered drawings, titled Line Work (#1 – #27) since March 2019. Through repeatedly working over marks made by the other, each artist able to bring their own perspective and life experience to the outcome. To cement this joint authorship, they regularly alternate between directing the drawing process and following the other’s instructions.

Through the process we each become a practitioner, a producer, and an audience.  We used this collaborative practice as a point of departure to approach the exhibition Line Work: Rivers of the Basin which is currently exhibiting Penrith Regional (25th  October 2021 – 7th  January 2022).

Line Work#19 (2020), paper silk pins aluminium wire gauze copperwire

Phaptawan is trained as a mural painter in Thai Buddhist temples and has lived in Sydney for two decades. Her work explores making sense of place through memory and experience of being a migrant in Australia. ‘Not For Sure’ 2012 was developed during two floods in Australia and Thailand which happened at the same time. The layered text is from a Thai Buddhist book ‘Not for Sure’ by Ajarn Cha Subhatto and ‘Kularb in Oz’ by Kularb Saipradit. 

Sue’s ink and pastel drawings titled Rope Work are inspired by reading Of Knots and Joints  written by social anthropologist Tim Ingold. The drawings experiment with visualising a philosophical and ecological text relating to memory, space, architecture and the materiality of carpentry and textiles.
