Talk: Reflections on The Drawing Matter Collection
with Eye to Pencil
Part of Guest Series
Eye to Pencil Studio
In this talk, Matt Page, artist and the Deputy Director of Drawing Matter, will discuss his interests in two objects from the collection, and the incorporation of architectural design drawing in his own practice.
The Drawing Matter Collection, housed
in Somerset, comprises many-thousand representations of architecture
and design thinking. In this talk, Matt Page, artist and the Deputy
Director of Drawing Matter, will discuss his interests in two objects
from the collection—a collage by the sculptor/architect Walter Pichler
and a drawing by the artist Ulrich Rückriem—each of which open up
manifold ways of thinking about the practice and uses of drawing.
The talk will conclude with a few
reflections on the ‘lessons’ from architectural and design drawing that
he has incorporated into his own art practice.
The session will include a chance to look at some original material from the collection.

Guest Series Format: Our series of talks and workshops are given by leading professionals across different fields who draw as a part of their work and life. In the Summer our guests will be discussing drawing in relation to murals, art, architecture, and satirical portraiture. These workshops are a unique chance to understand drawing from different disciplines - working hands on within a small group led by inspirational drawers.
Anyone who is interested in drawing or who draws but would like to try out new
materials and techniques centred on drawing.
