Murmurations: A visual exploration of individuality and community
by Stella Tripp
A set of 14 beautiful and mesmeric drawings from artist Stella Tripp. The drawings pull you in, catch the eye and stoke the imagination.
Visual meditations on an individual’s inclination to be a self contained unit, while at the same time being part of the larger unit that is a community. Reminiscent of a murmuration of starlings, each drawing is an accumulation of one repeated shape – or variations of it – creating another shape. Individual triangles shaping and shaped by those around them. Embracing imperfections, relationships, connections, and the spaces in between. What’s left out is as important as what’s put in.
Stella Tripp is an artist based in Exeter, Devon. Art is her way of trying to understand the world and connect with it. This series of drawings began during a two year term as president of Exeter Synagogue, and can be seen as a visual metaphor for an individual’s responsibility for shaping society.
