Two-day workshop: Saturday 16th and Sunday, 17th October, 1pm – 3.30pm. Online
Beginning with the question “Is there such a thing as a blank surface in drawing?”, this two-day workshop explores the role of surface/ground/support within the process and practice of drawing.
Using examples of her own drawing practice and contemporary Irish and International artists drawing practice, Kiera and attendees will consider the material and conceptual relationship between the graphic mark and surface/ground/support and how one informs and forms the other
Kiera O’Toole is an independent visual artist and a practice-based PhD researcher in drawing at Loughborough University, UK. Her practice interrogates the perceptual and aesthetic experience of drawing both inside and outside the gallery space. Kiera is interested in drawing’s capacity to bring forth the essence of a phenomena while making connections that arise between the aesthetic experience and the surrounding environment and/or society.
