The five artists explored in this publication – Kate Lyddon, Alice Maher, Richard Mark Rawlins, Caroline Wong and Joel Wyllie – use the slow processes of drawing to work through deeply personal experiences, anxieties, and desires. Drawing is agile enough to move across different periods of the artists’ lives: backwards, to recollected experiences; inwards, to excavate things that are hidden or obscured; and forwards, to new forms that arise through the process. Ostensibly modest practices – drawing, erasing, redrawing – can produce unimaginable beings and worlds that can surprise even their makers.
Contributors to the publication: Kate Macfarlane, Jacqui McIntosh, Mary Doyle and Huma Kabakci.
This soft back 32 page book (30 x 22cm) is designed by Ard – Chuard & Norregaard and published by Drawing Room on the occasion of Drawn Out.
