Sea Paper 1987

Not on display

  • Scottish Art
This work consists of a frond of seaweed delicately drawn in pencil on handmade paper. The subject of all of Elizabeth Ogilvie's art is the sea, as she seeks to evoke its movement and the abstract patterns it creates. The shape of the seaweed in this work suggests the rhythms of the sea, as if it is moving gently in the waves. Drawing in graphite is a labour-intensive process, very different from the loose and expressive style popular among some artists during the previous decade.
