Event description

Description

This special Drawing Session with Caroline Burraway is held in association with the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2018 exhibition at Drawing Projects UK on Saturday 30 March 2019 from 1pm to 3pm.

Caroline Burraway's drawing, Eden, The Jungle Calais, 2016 won First Prize in the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2018. Eden and Samuel, the subjects of her two large powerful charcoal drawings included in the exhibition, are refugees that Caroline met while undertaking field research in the French migrant camps in 2016. Her work lies in the interval where art and life rub together in the everyday lived experiecnce of the marginal individual.

During this two hour Drawing Session, you are invited to explore and experiment through the materiality of drawing the everyday reality of your lives or a socio-cultural or political issue that you are interested in. These issues may be, for example, mental health, ageing parents, homelessness, concerns over Brexit, the migrant crisis … the list is endless. Anything which makes you feel something.

Please bring source material such as photos/newspapers/images/objects of meaning etc and we will explore your ideas through drawing and mixed media. It would be useful to look at other artists you find interesting, both contemporary and historical and consider how these artists have responded to the issues of their time through drawing/painting/sculpture/film. For example: Rembrandt’s studies and etchings of ordinary people; Goya's Disasters of War; Picasso's Guernica; Jeff Wall’s backlit photographs which engage with social issues; or John Akomfrah's films dealing with race, identity and immigration.

Basic drawing materials will be provided. Please bring any specific materials you may need and reference material.

Please contact us by email if you have any questions.

We look forward to exploring drawing with you!

This Drawing Session will be followed by a Drawing Discussion with Caroline Burrawy and Anita Taylor at 4pm (booking recommended).
