Drawing Light (series of drawings)

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Drawing Light is an on going set of drawings that seeks to investigate the process of drawing as a means of generating a sensory experience of fluctuating light, which explore the limits of representation and a deceleration of perception. The first set of drawings using silverpoint and coloured pencil were exhibited as part of Figuring Light: Colour and the Intangible: An exhibition curated for the Djanogly Art Gallery, Nottingham, by Dr. Richard Davey, which brought together four artists - Duncan Bullen, Jane Bustin, Rebecca Partridge, and Richard Kenton Webb - who each are making a distinctive contribution to the exploration of colour and its capacity to connect us with sensations or experience which lie beyond ordinary sensory perception. Bullen contributed eight drawings for the exhibition and the accompanying publication contains a ‘Colour Conversation’ between Bullen and Davey. Further drawings from the series were exhibited in ‘From Art School to University, Art and Design at Brighton 1859-2009’, University of Brighton and ‘Drawing of the World, World of Drawing’, Museum of Art, Seoul National University.
