Entitled ‘Illustrator as Detective: Discovery through Drawing' my presentation explores a drawing project and exhibition I am currently undertaking at the Museum of East Asian Art, Bath that interrogates concepts of illustrator and illustration as visionary. I will explore the idea of innovation, revolution and discovery as I act as detective and interpret objects through the process of drawing.
The project explores ideas of future thinking in educational and professional developments, as the drawings act as functional and democratic means to communicate my personal responses to objects, and in turn challenge personal and studied responses from the public. Future thinking in educational and professional developments is also explored through the display of work, as drawings are displayed in cabinets in direct juxtaposition with objects, and will be exhibited throughout different galleries.
Speakers include Matthew Richardson, Gareth Proskourine-Barnett, Rachel Gannon, Darryl Clifton, Richard Miles, Andrew Kulman and Andy Davies. Petcha Kutcha presentations from Alice Moloney, Christian Lloyd, Jo Berry, Jo Hassel, Chloe Regan, Gary Powell and Aiden Winterburn.
