A look at how destruction is the route to creation for many artists and how we can create our own drawings from erasure!

About this event

THE ART OF ERASURE PART ONE

A look at how rubbing out, drawing over, tearing, smudging, folding, screwing up, burning, poking holes through and nearly completely destroying your work is a well used method of many artists!

This is a mixed media class in which we take destruction and creation as one and the same, learning the multitudes of ways in which we can utilise the act of destruction and erasure to create unexpected new works by unusual methods.

To kick things off Lucy McGeown will present a short 20 min lecture of how artists from Yves Klein , Gustav Metzer , Louise Bourgeois to Julie Mehretu, William Kentridge, Tacita Dean and Michael Landy have made work from destructive processes.

This will be a process led and playful class in which we look at the artists methods and ideas that create non-figurative and abstract work. By working between creating drawings and various acts of destructive intervention, we will be letting the processes and methods of erasure, ripping, re-assembly and overlaying create work that evolves and forms from one stage to the next.

This class promises to introduce you to new ideas and innovative techniques that will bring a fresh outcome to way in which you would usually create a drawing.

YOU WILL NEED:

-Newspaper/Magazines

-8 x sheets of paper (A4 and above)

-Scissors

-Masking Tape

-Glue

-Pens, Pencils, Pastels and Charcoal

-Any other materials you have - the more the better!

Organiser LONDON DRAWING GROUP

Organiser of The Art of Erasure : Drawing and Destruction (PART 1)


The London Drawing Group is a collective of three contemporary artists currently practising in London. Although our practices are individually varied and diverse, we are brought together by our shared love of and passion for drawing, and our experiences of being taught by a huge range of practising artists at the Royal Drawing School Central.

Our aim as a collective is simply to get more people drawing, making, connecting and engaging with art. We genuinely believe that art is for everyone, and that sometimes the only thing keeping people from engaging in the playful, unknown and unpredictable process of art-making, is that it can seem intimidating. Through working to break down contextual barriers through innovative methods of teaching and creating, we hope to make drawing approachable to everyone.
