Through ambiguity… toward [hyper]drawing

chapter
posted on 06.08.2015, 13:14 by Russell MarshallRussell Marshall, Phil Sawdon
Drawing Ambiguity builds upon its predecessors, Drawing Now: Between the Lines of Contemporary Art, 2007 and Hyperdrawing: Beyond the Lines of Contemporary Art, 2012, by proposing that a position of ambiguity, a lack of definition, is not only desirable within fine art drawing but also necessary - having the capacity to enable and sustain drawing practices. What happens if we are ambivalent to what is drawing, or what drawing is? The editors Russell Marshall and Phil Sawdon bring together seven invited contributions to offer multiple perspectives from within and without the fine art drawing field to respond to these questions. Each contributor was offered the opportunity to acknowledge ambiguity within drawing as creatively informed by three overarching themes: William Empson’s Seven Types of Ambiguity in literary prose, the logical fallacies of ambiguity, and grammatical prepositions.
