Challenging Drawing

Challenging Drawing
Recent Drawings by Tim Dunbar

Waterside Art Centre, Sale, Trafford.

This really interesting exhibition is made up of drawings using scraper boards, photographs and Ipad images and takes a fresh look at drawing methods.  It makes references to mathematical diagrams, renaissance perspective and drawing conventions from the 16th Century.  Source material include iconic paintings such as Guernica, the site of the shooting of Martin Luther King, Homer Simpson and the wreckage of a car bomb from Baghdad.  A range of studio notebooks from this period are also displayed.

The exhibition really does 'challenge' notions of drawing.  Sue.
