Author : Steve Garner
Description:An increased public and academic interest in drawing and sketching, both traditional and digital, has allowed drawing research to emerge recently as a discipline in its own right. In light of this development, Writing on Drawing presents a collection of essays by leading artists and drawing researchers that reveal a provocative agenda for the field, analyzing the latest work on creativity, education, and thinking from a variety of perspectives. An essential resource for artists, scientists, designers, and engineers, this volume offers consolidation, discussion, and guidance for a previously fragmented discipline. This book captures the range of current debates, each contributor addresses themes that are significant to the development of drawing both as a practice and as a critical discourse. The book helps to outline an intellectual frame of reference for drawing practices, and allows an interdisciplinary conversation around the role of these activities in the wider world. This is an impressive achievement, as an academic who wishes to explore drawing as a cognitive process and as an artist working in the mass mediated world where the language of drawing has found a vital role, this book will be invaluable for me and to my students.Mario Minichiello, Birmingham City University (20090401)
