DRAW Show exhibitors

The exhibition included many established and well known artists who all use drawing in a significant way in their practice. Quentin Blake, Chris Orr, David Rayson, Sara Fanelli, Sir Peter Blake, Dan Fern and Richard Wentworth were some of those whose work was shown. There was also a team of curators made up from students currently studying on the course. In one gallery shown in the first photo, artists with wide ranging practices were placed side by side. Their use of drawing in preliminary sketches and in the development of concepts was revealed in the notebooks, scraps of paper and well drafted diagrams. Particular emphasis was placed on showing the development and preparations needed to produce a film, chair or painting, for example.

In the next room the artists from the DRAW sessions were featured side by side. Drawings from Paul Noble, Joseph Child, Ann Course, Adam Dant and children’s illustration from Angela Barrett and Quentin Blake were featured. My work and Quentin’s work is shown in the photo above on the left wall. It was a very exciting project to be involved in, the space was large and impressive and after the work was hung it looked great together.
