25-29 November, 10am-6pm
‘Drawing In/Drawing Out’ brings together a group of artists who met, drew and grew together whilst studying on the Drawing Intensive course at the Royal Drawing School during the Spring-Summer of 2021.
Each artist comes from a different background, with a diverse range of nationalities, age groups and experiences, from fine art to history of art, architecture, science and literature. Each with their own uniquely individual practice, they are bound together by a drive to draw and to explore various forms of materiality and mark making in order to bring their ideas to life on paper.
Whilst they all structured their Drawing Intensive term in distinct ways, they were able to share ideas and learn from each other mutually, especially after a long period of introspection driven by the pandemic.
The exhibition at hARTSlane space will feature some of their best work from their time at the Royal Drawing School alongside the pieces they have made since, thus bridging the space between their individual practices and the lessons learnt on the course. The selection of work will include drawings, paintings, prints, sketchbooks and other creations.
‘Drawing In/Drawing Out’ will bring into play elements of experimentation and communal learning, which were fundamental to the artists’ experience at the Royal Drawing School and still continue to nourish their art practices.
