Creative Kernow

Michelle Ohlson

My practice is centred on drawing in its widest sense.

Taking commonplace, often found, objects as my subject, I make closely observed drawn or
photographic studies of things that are usually overlooked.
A cache of redundant lightbulbs is rendered in graphite and beeswax on a fine gesso surface,
garden weeds are documented by making silver gelatin photograms and a collection of WW1
postcards is worked into with areas of graphite polished to a mirror shine.
Bringing together these unremarkable objects with precious, evocative materials I seek to unsettle
our relationship with the everyday world, and highlight its underlying poetry.
Returning to artistic practice after a break of several years I am currently taking part in the Newlyn
School of Art’s Mentoring Course. Friends and fellow mentees Tanya Krzyswinska, Sally Tripptree,
Lesley Young and I work together in Studio G08 with the shared intention of not only making our
own work, but consciously supporting and furthering each other’s learning and development as
artists during our time at Krowji.
