Front Cover
Black Dog Publishing, 2011 - Art - 239 pages
"'Drawing projects: an exploration of the language of drawing' is both a practical guide to drawing and an informative insight into the minds of artists who work with the medium. This comprehensive study of the art of drawing provides both a commentary on leading contemporary practitioners and a 'how to explore drawing' style approach, celebrating drawing as the process of seeing made visible. From studying our relationship with drawing from our earliest encounters with it as children, before a distinction between writing and drawing is made. 'Drawing projects' explores the freedom of expression that drawing allows. Profiling 19 artists and illustrators, including Dryden Goodwin, Cornelia Parker, Claude Heath, William Kentridge, Jeff Koons, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Julie Mehretu and Keith Tyson, the book reveals their working methods and practices." -- From the back cover
