First shown in 2011 as part of the Working Drawings conference in Sheffield, the exhibition, curated by Lee Ford, features everything from rough designs and layouts to just concepts scribbled on the back of a bus ticket.
We like Jill Calder’s studies of people, Margeret Huber’s drawings of ‘two pretty beige dogs walking nicely’ (on the back of a Tube ticket) and David Hughes’s Tales from Tel Aviv.
Calder says, ‘Drawing a picture gets to the heart of what it could become’, while Glaser says, ‘Drawing is the best way of understanding what you are looking at. In most cases, I have discovered that it is impossible to see anything until you have made a deliberate attempt to draw it.’
In addition to the show, Abram Games’s daughter Naomi will be giving a talk on 3 April, discussing her father’s work – including how he progressed initial ideas to final projects.
Working Drawings is at London Gallery West, University of Westminster, Watford Road, Harrow HA1 from 23 March-6 May.
