Join us for a webinar online to celebrate the launch of Drawing Investigations: Graphic Relationships with Science, Culture and Environment by Sarah Casey and Gerry Davies released by Bloomsbury in hardcover on Thursday 9 July 2020 at 7pm.
To celebrate the release of this exciting new book, Drawing Projects UK is hosting a webinar dedicated to the topic of investigative drawing.
Professor Anita Taylor will be joined by the authors, Sarah Casey and Gerry Davies, and some of the artists featured in the book to share their perspectives on the value drawing as a means of seeing and understanding the world. Following these micro-presentations there will be opportunity for audience questions.
About the Book: Using close visual analysis of drawings, artist interviews, critical analysis and exegesis, Drawing Investigations examines how artists use drawing as an investigative tool to reveal information that would otherwise remain unseen and unnoticed. By exploring drawing's capacity to capture and describe experience, to sharpen visual faculties and to bridge embodied and conceptual knowledge, Drawing Investigations offers a fresh critical perspective on contemporary drawing practice.
Drawing Investigations is the part of the Drawing In series of books on drawing led by series editors Russell Marshall Marsha Meskimmon and Phil Sawdon.
About the contributors: Sarah Casey and Gerry Davies are both artists and Senior Lecturers in Drawing at Lancaster University in the UK.
Professor Anita Taylor is an artist and Dean of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art at the University of Dundee, founding Director of Drawing Projects UK and the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize project.
