FRIDAY NIGHT TODDLER ART GALLERY - Lines Behind the Dining


Welcome to the ninth Friday night opening of our gallery of Toddler Art.
Basically, our kids destroying the house, one installation at a time, while we're not looking.

It all started with “Sprinkles



Then came Green Crayon Squiggles at Sofa's End, "Fence Behind Your Head", "Artist with Permanent Red on Whiteboard", "Freedom Corner", "Pencil Food", "Pencil Food Oh", and last week "Two Lines from my Doctor's Desk".



This week it's...

#9 - Lines Behind the Dining



5B graphite pencil (we think) on B&Q Value Matt Emulsion

It's very rare for us to see a work from The Artists on the same eye-line as an adult.

(Which makes dating the works a near impossible task).

When one like this appears, you have to marvel at the ingenuity that has gone into even getting the work there.

Again, as ever, no drawing materials are provided to The Artists, and yet they can still finagle a way to get the work up and be away before anyone has the chance to notice or challenge them.

This work is a more complex development from, say, "Two Lines from my Doctor's Desk" - we're passionate about food and eating. But it also marks out only one of the dining positions. Exalting this chair above all the others around the table.

This place is special, now.

Next week: “Telephone Line”.

All of the works in the Toddler Art Gallery are here.
