In Focus - Paintings by Robin Heaton from 20 July to 25 August

Drawing Projects UK is pleased to present In Focus: Paintings by Robin Heaton from 20 July to 25 August 2019.

Robin Heaton is an American painter who has been resident in the UK for 32 years. She graduated with First Class Honours in Fine Art in 2000. Now based in Wiltshire, Robin is a current studio holder at Drawing Projects UK. 

Using household paint and varnish, Robin's work finds its subjects in abstracted images of aerial photographs of Earth from Space, and of biological cell images, expressions toward the macrocosm and the microcosm. The paintings aim to celebrate and exalt the continuity of organic form through her reading of these images. Inherent within this enquiry is her interest in how technology has enabled us to view ourselves existentially from these polar perspectives.

In Focus: Paintings by Robin Heaton is presented in The Entrance Hall and is open to the public from Tuesday to Saturday from 8am to 4pm and on Sundays 11am to 1pm, or by appointment. Please check with us in advance if travelling to see the exhibition as our opening hours may change.

In Focus: Drawings by Anita Taylor

Anita Taylor, Pause, Charcoal on Paper, 38 x 28cm, 2019

Drawing Projects UK is pleased to present In Focus: Drawings by Anita Taylor from 1 July to 26 August 2019. 

For more than three decades, Anita Taylor has been making charcoal drawings that explore the relationship of the female subject (as artist and model) and the defining acts of scrutiny, gaze and feeling. This interrogation of gesture and expression has led to a sequence of drawings that question not just the appearance, but the emotional or haptic sensation of being inside a skin or body that can only be seen or recognised by the self with the aid of a mirror. 

Anita Taylor has exhibited widely nationally and internationally, and has drawings in a number of public collections, including the V&A and the Jerwood Collection. In addition to her practice as an artist, Anita Taylor is a curator, educator and writer, and is the founding Director of the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize project and Drawing Projects UK. 

In Focus: Drawings by Anita Taylor is presented in the gallery, The Chief Secretary's Office, and during August is open to the public by appointment and during events. For further information about the exhibition, sales enquiries, associated events or Drawing Projects UK, please call us on 01225 767993 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
