‘To Draw: Drawing Draws Draward’
In this collection of readings, edited by Sawdon and Marshall, I offer an expanded sense of drawing as a site of embodiment, language and breath. Works by Giuseppe Penone, Susan Skingle, Shirazeh Houshiary, Heather Phillipson, Jordan McKenzie and others are considered in relation to the process of drawing.
