Drawology, originally seen at the Bonington Gallery, Nottingham Trent University, in Autumn 2013, explores how drawing has the ability to record both its own making and the movement of the thoughts and body of the drawer. Bringing together the work of several artists with differing practices, Drawology aims to consider whether this premise is applicable to a specific process or genre of drawing or whether it is applicable to drawing generally. In this respect the works in the exhibition represent an expanded field of contemporary drawing in a Fine Art context to include: works on paper, performance, moving image, installation, projections and three-dimensional drawings. The exhibition is part of a larger research project currently being undertaken by Deborah Harty entitled ‘Drawing is phenomenology'.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

The exhibition is open 12noon-6pm Monday-Saturday.

A printed catalogue, including work from each of the included artists, is available from the Lanchester Gallery, Coventrey or Bonington Gallery, Nottingham. Online version available here.


As part of the gallery space, movable wall panels have been located in front of the large gallery side windows to offer extra exhibition space.  This 'artificial' wall (a transient upright) is beautifully reminiscent of theatrical 'flats' and connects conceptually, and practically, with the location, placement and illumination of the piece.

There is a natural synergy with Deborah Harty's large folded drawing - reminiscent of theatrical curtains - which stands close to the black tripod spotlight.

The massive luminous source - radiating heat from the large bulb inside - makes visible the tiny marks, hovering in space, released by the holographic surface.  A sledge hammer to crack a nut.  

An almost insignificant object not offered the 'credibility' of eye level display and invisible from most of the gallery.



Exhibition dates: 26th September - 26th October 2014
