Crescent Arts’ Director, Stuart Cameron, asked our current resident artists to consider what part drawing played in their practice, if any. This exhibition provides a response which ranges across Simon Farid’s video walk through Cairo, Susan Slann’s sewn canvas, to Dawn Brooks’s automatic drawing and mark-making for intaglio print. There’s a video projection by Webb-Ellis, Susan Timmins’ three dimensional drawing and slide-viewer works by ceramicist Karen Thompson. The artists offer propositions for drawing as exploratory, investigative, analytical, or perhaps documentary activity; frequently involving humour and, more often than not, contradicting traditional notions of drawing.
