Art Exhibitions Suffolk  February 2016
Wednesday 6 January to Friday 19 February
Collateral Drawing
9.00am-4.00pm
Waterfront Gallery ,University Campus Suffolk




Sixteen established artists with an East Anglian connection will reveal elements from their creative process that would otherwise remain unseen by the public alongside a finished artwork.

The exhibition, entitled Collateral Drawing, will provide an invaluable insight into each artist's working methodology, exposing various clues and elements integral to the creation of a final artwork.

Artists Talk and Finissage: 17 February

There's more to an artwork than its finished state, but exhibitions concentrate on that, along perhaps with preparatory studies which act as preliminary versions of that state. Yet there may be any number of by-products from the making of an artwork, and that is what Collateral Drawing explores. These may take such forms as the stage setting, models or constructions which are created in order to facilitate the work itself; the redefinition of past work as collateral to a future work in which it is repurposed; various means of recycling aspects of a practice; or the marks which result £ serendipitously, but with a more than accidental logic from the production itself.

Collateral Drawing East Anglia explores the relationship between finished works and the collateral drawing which fed into or resulted from their making in the work of sixteen artists with an East Anglian connection - Each artist was approached by the curators six months in advance and asked to retain the collateral elements of some new work by isolating or documenting elements of their working environment, as a means to record the artists subconscious actions around their day-to-day creativity. These elements were then carefully collated and presented alongside an artwork that the artist produced alongside them during this period.
