Drawing from Life : Installations of Large-scale Drawings by Eight Okanagan-based Artists (Paperback)
About this item
Eight artists, all of whom have a strong drawing component in their practices, present large-scale works commissioned especially for a group exhibition. While drawing is an ancient medium, it is so often treated as a second-class citizen in the art world - even more so with the advent of new media and the saturation of contemporary life with digital images, which are obtained instantaneously. Drawing, by contrast, is a time-based art, a mostly slow medium as underlined in the photographs of the artists at work that accompany the full-page plates of the works themselves. The artists are David Alexander, Rose Braun, Jane Everett, Wanda Lock, Amy Modahl, Gary Pearson, Sage Sidley, and Johann Wessels.
