Trembling Tulips

In the spring, the tables at the Musée workshops will start acting fidgety. Nevertheless, we will improvise doodle-like drawings of fragments of tulips. Because of the instability of our work surface, the lines we draw will be a little crooked, awkwardly altered. These subtle distortions will make our sketches utterly original. Through a simple process, our drawn lines will then be turned into reliefs. Finally, we will use a brush to paint the entire composition a single colour. For this project, we will take our inspiration from a unique wall sculpture called Debby Lexier’s Tulip Drawing, 2008. This work from the Musée collection is the result of a novel collaboration between the artist Micah Lexier and his mother, Debby Lexier.
