Description - The Multitude Diaries by Chris Orr
"The Multitude Diaries" presents 238 of Orr's drawings from the last twenty years. Best known as a printmaker, Chris Orr RA is also a prodigious draughtsman. His drawings introduce a cast of characters, artefacts and symbols which appear and reappear against fictional and real backdrops, whether river, street or skyline. Often rehearsals for his prints and paintings, these drawings when combined form a scrapbook, recording the artis' ongoing preoccupations, observations and random inspirations. The result is a visual labyrinth, revealing the potential of the drawing-book as a place for experimentation and the panoramic scope of Orr's practice.
