Sarah Rhys & Torfaen MIND

Sarah Rhys has been working with a group at MIND in Torfaen.

I had a really responsive group at Torfaen MIND. I was delighted that they responded so immediately to the ideas and themes I wanted to explore. The work that we created was exploring concepts of transformation, this being one of the key themes in In Parenthesis, through alchemical signs and symbols.

For many in the group, drawing was something they hadn’t done for years; one person hadn’t drawn since her schooldays. Initially I explained that I wanted to just see their ideas and that the quality of drawing wasn’t important. Gradually, their work and confidence developed. Some were inspired by a collection of books of strong imagery that I had brought with me. I also showed the group how images could be created using the photocopier combined with drawings.

The images were designed within circles, as their drawings were going to be transferred to acrylic discs. The drawings are all monochrome which gives them a beautiful delicacy. I am impressed with the vision that this group had for their work and I really enjoyed their company.
