Black & White at the Guild

Black & White: Where Lines Can Take Us By LiliAnne Webster
At the Guild through April 30
We have become all too familiar with the phrase “Black and White” meaning clearly defined
lines. This series explores the use of a line. LiliAnne’s goal is using black and white lines to
communicate more abstract thinking and to question how we interpret lines. Black lines on
white and white lines on black; the lines go from organic shapes that freely flow to purposefully
made marks that create figurative forms.
In this series LiliAnne explores her understanding of lines and pushes herself to look at what
lines mean and how they capture the natural flow of her environment. She limits herself to the
simple black and white palette thus challenging herself to look at the world differently. She
explores movement and emotion with new vision and insight. What began as a simple task with
ink pen on paper in a mindless act of meditation soon began to create form and shape that
echoed representative patterns. Continuing in this process faces appeared with almost
fingerprint patterning, trees grew in wood-grain patterns, lines of poetry evoked an artistic
response and flowers and leaves moved on page after page of exploration.
