About the Event

Knot Works is pleased to announce their second exhibition Knot Works: Presents II.

The exhibition will feature thirty drawings created by artists and designers living in the UK and internationally. The exhibition will bring together and showcase a range of approaches to drawing, including note making, sketches, preparatory drawings and experimental works.

Drawing offers a fascinating insight into the creative process. At times, drawing can be necessary and exploratory in nature. At other times it may serve a more radical purpose and enable the producer to create a drastically different output than is usually created.

The thirty drawings reflect the breadth of an often overlooked art form and supports one of the aims of Knot Works, to bring attention to the work of contemporary artists and designers. Many of the drawings in the exhibition have never been publicly exhibited, so this is a rare chance to see the exciting and less exhibited aspect to thirty contemporary artists and designers working today.

The exhibition includes a new ‘pigment drawing’ created by French artist Élodie Huet, made using using tape and pigment, the traces of the tape beautifully picked up by the delicate handling of pigment. Maddy Matthews’ drawing made using dense pencil marks is steeped in the intricacies of internet culture and memes. There are preparatory painted works like those made by Richard Jed Butler and Lucienne O’Mara which offer a glimpse into their creative process. And works by Elizabeth McCarten, Tom Hammick and Tim Patrick provide a direct link to the great historical masters of drawing. Together, the range of approaches to drawing featured in the exhibition demonstrates the potentialities and inherently boundary pushing nature of drawing.

Full list of exhibitors: Edwin Aitken, Richard Jed Butler, Nola Cammu, Cedric Christie, Richard Coleman III, Holly Jean Crosbie, Jean Crosbie, Mikey Cuddihy, Michael Dillon, Ashleigh Fisk, Tom Hammick, Emily Hawes, Janne Holzmüller, Élodie Huet, Lucie Lanzini, Edward Liddle, John Liddle, Alice Liptrot, Maëlle Maisonneuve, George Manson, Maddy Mathews, Elizabeth McCarten, Mocksim, Lucienne O’Mara, Eva Paetzold, Tim Patrick, Carmel Pia, Andrew Pranger, Joseph Schneider, Eleanor May Watson, Samuel Wheeler.

Established in 2021, Knot Works is an arts organisation run by three friends. Their ambition, through the hosting of artist workshops, group crits and exhibitions is to bring people together to learn, share and grow through creativity and the platforming of outstanding arts in Tunbridge Wells.


Please join us on Saturday 19th March for the opening event (12pm-6pm). Following the opening event the exhibition will be open by appointment. Entry to the exhibition is free but must be booked in advance.
