Professor Anita Taylor
Drawing: Interrogating Appearances

One of my pre-occupations, both in terms of my practice as a painter and as a wider research issue, is focussed on the investigation into how we may understand and interrogate the role of drawing. Drawing remains a central and pivotal activity to the work of many artists and designers as a means of creative exploration that informs discovery and fundamentally enables the visualisation, development and communication of perceptions and ideas. Therefore,
Anita Taylor
the role of drawing in education remains critical, and not just to the creative disciplines in art and design for which it is foundational. Set in this context, the presentation will focus on the importance and value of the role of drawing in my own practice, through the Jerwood Drawing Prize project, and more widely.
