Artcore Gallery is pleased to announce its latest residency opportunity, Untitled, for two artists in Derbyshire looking to hone their skills in drawing and reflect on the role of the medium, both in their practices as well as the larger world today.
As human beings, we have always been involved in mark-making; traditionally, and ritualistically, as a means of recording, expressing as well as communicating with each other. Drawings on the floor, wall, cave, paper or canvas are everywhere. However, they are rarely thought of as works of art.
The advent of modernism and postmodernism changed the way artists perceived the technique. Drawing finally became a medium in its own right and was valued for its immense potential and ability to aid in experimentation, in the face of new media, technologies and concerns.
More than half a century down the line, our ways of creating are undergoing rapid change, particularly now as we have shifted to a completely digital era. What does it mean to think of the medium today, in contemporary art practice and the larger world?
