Drawing Now: Between the Lines of Contemporary Art
TRACEY is an online peer reviewed journal hosted by Loughborough University (School of Art and Design), that publishes and disseminates material concerned with contemporary drawing. Drawing Now: Between the Lines of Contemporary Art is a publication offering a survey of contemporary drawing practices. A gallery in book form, this showcase of the best of drawing now features over one hundred works by almost fifty artists, including Susan Hauptman, Paul Noble, Jeff Gabel, Tracey Emin, Jane Harris, Erwin Wurm, Cornelia Parker, David Shrigley and 2004 Jerwood Drawing Prize winner Sarah Woodfine. Carefully 'curated' with many new drawings specifically commissioned for the volume, the book also includes an introduction for the Editors which lays out the themes underpinning this diverse and exciting selection of work. With a revival of interest in drawing in recent years, Drawing Now is a timely collection of the work of artists intent on giving a contemporary twist to this most traditional of forms.
Peer reviewed 101 page book authored by TRACEY the drawing research online journal. Invited to submit, the work Feather Light (2005) was a large scale drawing, the precursor to a series of new work using silver as the medium to draw with.
