From 9th April to 4th June, Bassetlaw Museum, 40 Grove Street, Retford, presents an exhibition of charcoal drawings from artist Adam Boardman.
Adam works mainly in charcoal because of the freedom this gives him when drawing. It allows him to work very fast and spontaneously, which suits his more improvised approach to creating work.
The main inspiration for his work comes from a series of photographs taken by his grandfather in Hong Kong in the early 50s. Through drawing he tries to recreate and reconstruct these photographs in new and intriguing ways. Taking inspiration from artists like Francis Bacon, Adam creates figurative drawings, which are more expressive and abstract, often working strictly from memory and imagination.
