This publication features an essay by Anna Lovatt that sheds light on the history of the relationship between drawing and sculpture and suggests how:
“Moving beyond the familiar trope of “drawing in space,” [the artists] explore alternative dialogues between drawing and sculpture that include, but are not limited to, the condition of linearity… I will identify four alternative points of contact between the two practices: structure, scale, surface and slightness. These are not intended to be all-encompassing or mutually exclusive categories, but to indicate the multifarious connections between drawing and sculpture being explored today.”
Published in 2012 by Drawing Room, London, and Leeds Art Gallery to coincide with the exhibition Drawing : Sculpture, a partnership between Drawing Room and Leeds Art Gallery.
