Artist in Residence

Friday, 15 January 2016 12:55 Published in News

As part of the Performing Drawology exhibition at the Bonington Gallery, Andrew Pepper will be artist in residence on Thursday February 4th.

Starting in January 2016 the Gallery will be traced back to an open white space: a surface on which to draw and experience drawing.

Over the course of one month artists are invited to spend a period of time in the Gallery creating lines, marks and tones that explore and respond to the space through a variety of drawing processes. The exhibition will celebrate the expanded field of contemporary drawing and will include: paper, performance, moving image, installation, projections and three-dimensional drawing.

Vantage points will be made available in the Gallery throughout the exhibition to encourage visitors to witness and engage with the work as it continuously unfolds and takes form.

The artists welcome responses from the public and have designated specific discussion events when visitors are invited to meet the artists and to pose any questions they might have about the work taking place.

Drawology

Sunday, 21 September 2014 00:00 Published in Group Exhibitions

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.

PA Redrawn-Line

Friday, 01 November 2013 00:00 Published in Holography

Title: PA Redrawn-Line

Date: 2013

Edition: Unique

Materials: 20 Reflection holograms on glass.

Size: Installation 100 x 20 cm (approx.)

Notes: Based on previous floor works using multiple holograms, this piece was first shown in the Drawology group exhibition at the Bonington Gallery, Nottingham, UK.

 

Each of the rectangular holograms are placed in a line, overlapping, covering and in a variety of orientations.

Illuminated from above by a strip of light directed vertically down onto the installation, the marks in each of the holograms appear and fade as an observer moves around the piece.

The marks (three different types) appear just above the glass plate on which they are recorded.
