Brigitte Jurack was originally scheduled to hold a physical exhibition at the Williamson Art Gallery & Museum in 2020.
When Covid-19 restrictions made the possibility of this less certain, the idea emerged to instead produce a work suited to online exhibition. Jurack has embraced this with Concentration, a film which celebrates the physical act of mark-making for a digital audience.
The film is available to view now on the Williamson Art Gallery & Museum website
Created in lockdown, Concentration captures the spirit of single-mindedness required for the process of art making. Using a Chinese Brush and watercolours, Jurack’s focus is on the small acts of the present moment. Concentration is a quiet dance between the freedom of imagination and the realisation of artistic intent.
About the artist:
Brigitte Jurack (born Duesseldorf, 1962) studied at Kunstakademie Duesseldorf, Glasgow School of Art and Chelsea College of Art & Design in London.
As an artist, Jurack looks at the world as it is and tries to make sense of it; her process could be described as picking up what is already out there. The material and non-material outcomes of what actually appears in the studio or exhibition are driven by the desire to create and hold on to the elusiveness of visual sensations.
