Alexander Gorlizki works across a wide variety of media and processes, many of which involve collaboration with artists, musicians, designers, film-makers, weavers, sand-casters, marble carvers amongst others. At the heart of every aspect of his work is drawing.
In giving drawing a very broad definition and using it as a process and metaphor the artists are encouraged to set aside their preconceptions of what constitutes ‘good’ or ‘bad’ drawing and to approach it with an open mind. The workshop will be intensive but conducted in a spirit of play and adventure.
While focusing on the practical side we will also include some art historical context with short presentations about artists who’ve used drawing in surprising ways. We will also look at examples of drawing-dedicated museums, institutions and collections, with a view to exploring specific applications for participants’ professional development.
