Simply Mindful is delighted to present this exhibition which will be face to face at our Dickson venue, the Gathering Place.

Come and view original works by Simone Annis exploring the concept of “Desired Lines.”

In urban and transport planning ‘desire lines’ refer to the unofficial paths that collective feet make through the landscape over time. These well-trodden paths are both subversive, being illicit, and conversely, the path of least resistance. Desire Lines are paths that form themselves and are evidence of both humanity and the impact of humans in the environment. The desired lines in these paintings are personal and reflective. The marks made by the paint brush, are lines with hindsight (hence the use of past tense). Expressing both what was yearned for in life and what has come to pass, as well as hinting at the unformed road ahead.
