Find out more about Drawing Room, what we do, and our relationship with studio provider Tannery Arts.
Tannery Arts is a small, independent charity concerned with supporting the professional development of emerging and established artists through the provision of affordable studios, promoting their practice through opportunities to exhibit work, develop projects, generate partnerships with local authorities, private property owners and social housing organisations as well as engage in learning activities.
This catalogue was published to accompany an exhibition of new commissions by Diana Cooper and Hew Locke at Drawing Room. It marks the culmination of a partnership between Drawing Room and the Centre for Drawing at Wimbledon School of Art.
The 5,000 word essay by Dr Jon Wood examines in detail the working process of Cooper and Locke. Their tendency to use drawing to activate the divide between the second and third dimension is linked to the practice of their contemporaries and its historical legacy is unravelled.
40 pages with 23 full colour illustrations.
