A Captive Audience

The Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in Swansea has a fabulous drawing exhibition, “Hand Drawn Action Packed“, which opened with a guided talk from the show’s curators, Roger Malbert and Antonia Shaw. These events are always good for a quick scribble, people are generally quite still. I always carry a sketchbook – this is an A6 size hardbound one and I prefer to draw in ballpoint pen on this scale.

And a captive audience is good practice for drawing a crowd, getting the perspective and proportions right, without too much moving around.

There are ten artists featured, Marcel Dzama | Marcel van Eeden | Inci Eviner | Yun-Fei Ji | William Kentridge | Nalini Malani | Otobong Nkanga | Raymond Pettibon | Amy Sillman | Rinus Van de Velde.

I liked them all but particularly William Kentridge, Rinus Van de Velde and Nalini Malani.
