Drawing - the Purpose by Leo Duff
Book DescriptionThis is a co-edited volume, focusing on why drawing is used in creative processes with contributions from academic and practical perspectives. It features clear illustrations of drawings made by the practitioners studied to back up the readable and accessible essays. It presents an interdisciplinary, wide-ranging cross section of both well-known and emerging practitioners. It raises questions that are frequently asked and discussed, but not researched or investigated methodically.To clear their minds and organize their ideas, artists will often start projects by drawing sketches. "Drawing" asks why artists and designers use drawing in that way to kick-start their creative thinking, considering the application of drawing and its various uses across disciplines. From the interdisciplinary perspectives of archaeology, jewellery design, illustration, and landscape architecture, this innovative volume highlights how drawing is used in the professional world. With examples from both contemporary and historical contexts, "Drawing" will be an invaluable resource for practitioners and scholars seeking a rationale for why we draw.
