Katie Belcher dreams big 

 The Archive:2007-2010  gathers inspiration from found and imagined objects.

The idea for The Archive literally came to Katie Belcher in a dream. Browsing antique shops and walking on old properties had her thinking about forgotten or unused objects, but the item that began this series of charcoal drawings was an imagined one. "That particular object was almost forgotten because...dreams kind of disappear as you're trying to remember them, and that idea sort of spun off." Belcher has been working on the series for four years, drawing objects that have ambiguous functions. "They're all done with a lot of eraser which kind of animates the drawing even though it's a static object, the objects are sort of appearing and disappearing." The collection of singular drawings comes together to form an archive that includes musical instruments, agricultural tools and bird specimens and continues to grow with Belcher's various inspirations.

To January 30 , Craig Gallery, Alderney Landing, 2 Ochterloney Street
