Triptych : reflecting on drawing practice as knowledge

Triptych is a collaborative research group originated by Kingston University, Loughborough University and the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) in 2005. Triptych’s strategic intention is to improve the recognition, use and understanding of drawing pedagogy, whilst investigating the use and application of drawing in professional practice. Practice and theory will be explored to contribute to knowledge of the act of drawing. This includes investigation of diverse and contemporary aspects of the fine arts, design, built environment, pedagogy and theory on drawing. Triptych is built upon the research interests and expertise of its members. This can be evidenced not only through individual practice based research but also in projects such as TRACEY (Loughborough), Drawing – The Process (Kingston, to be followed by Drawing - The Purpose) and The DrawingLab (DIT).
