Maud Whatley makes drawings which layer images and motifs taken from art-historical paintings, online archives, her camera roll and google image results. Her work intends to explore some of the politics of looking at things, the unexpected eroticism of placing different ideas in the context of one another and the ways in which the repetitive insistent touches of drawing can be sexy and weird. Whatley is based in Margate. She has shown work there at LIMBO (A convenient size for the lap, 2019) and CRATE (Domino, 2018) as well as in London (Careless whisper, 2019) and Folkestone (Giggling quietly at the feel of it, 2018). She has spoken at the London Conference of Critical Thought (2018) and published drawings in Hotel magazine (2021).
