Gabi Marcellus-Temple ‘Drawn To Ride’
Gabi Marcellus-Temple is a multidisciplinary artist who regularly travels by bus in and around the Plymouth area. She has spent the past months regularly sketching on buses, at bus stops and around the city, led a sketching workshop on the buses and interviewed five Plymouth based artists about their practice, traveling to different parts of the city with them.
Sound specialist: Gabi has been supported on this project by HiP.P, an experimental sound artist based in Cornwall, who has recorded and edited the recorded interviews used. They even got sketched a couple of times sitting in her view on the bus!
As well as Gabi’s work from the residency and the winning entries from a drawing competition held in February, the artists’ work is displayed here (click on the right hand image).
