“Mark Making: Drawing as Visual Thinking” Lecture. May 15th 7-10pm at the Pioneer Works
Posted on 05/01 at 01:09 PM
On May 15th I will be giving a talk: “Mark Making: Drawing as Visual Thinking” at the Pioneer Works Center for Art and Innovation in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
This slide talk will be a rollicking romp through 30,000 years of visual culture from cave painting to video games.
Through images and conversation we will explore how humans have used the process of mark making as a tool to understand and describe the world around us, as well as the world within us. By comparing specific mark making processes in detail we will discuss how our contemporary drawing practices relate to the most ancient examples of mark making, and how our individual drawing processes connect to larger cultural and universal systems of aesthetic logic.
I have been adding-to and editing this presentation for 6 years and have used it as a foundation for the drawing classes I have taught at Cooper Union. It has been an ongoing meditation on the process of drawing- a process that is central to my work and my life.
Come out to Red Hook, Brooklyn.
Come see the newly renovated Pioneer Works.
The talk costs $40 (cheap! and in support of an artist run organization)
Let’s talk drawing
