Talk: Drawing and the Found Object
Alastair Levy
Part of Guest Series Eye to Pencil Studio
Tue 15 Nov 6.30-8pm
In this talk Alastair Levy will explore the role of drawing within a multidisciplinary practice that also incorporates video, photography, painting and sculpture. TALK DESCRIPTION
The impulse to collect and work with found objects links these diverse approaches to image-making. Alastair will examine how drawing connects with this drive to archive the everyday. He will discuss how drawing can be both a form of ‘exercise’ in its own right, seeking no preconceived outcome, as well as a means to realising more structured, finished artworks. What is the relationship between these two very different kinds of activity and how do they inform each other?

Guest Series Format: We will be joined by guests from different fields: art, ethnobotany, anatomy, and photography each of whom is committed to drawing. The format for the Guest Series will be for each guest to give a talk about how drawing relates to their own work and field, then at a later date they will lead a day long drawing workshop based on their practice.
Tuesday, 15 November6.30-8pm
