Burnside  Painting  Group

Community Art Group

Wednesday 21 February 2018 from 7.30pm

Guest speaker:   Greg Donovan on 'The expanded field of Drawing'

Our guest at the AGM 2018 is Greg Donovan, who will talk about drawing. 

Greg is Adjunct Senior Lecturer at the School of Art, Architecture and Design, University of South Australia, and is a practising artist.

Greg has provided the following background about what he will cover in his talk.

"It is interesting to note the historical debate concerning the rhetorical descriptions of how we might describe drawing. Returning to the Latin term, designo, provides a chronological context and yet simultaneously non-lineal discourse focussed on drawing within both a traditional framework and a more expansive contemporary vision.


In essence, drawing is a verb---it is an act upon. It is doing -- rather than describing.


Supporting my talk, I will show numerous visual examples of how drawing and its various interpretations through experimental/mixed mediums has changed over time."
