Drawings & Notes

About contemporary drawing

Drawings & Notes is weblog about contemporary drawing. It started in 2008 as an online research into what a drawing can be in contemporary art. An exploration of the ways artists use the drawing line, marks and scribbles and gesture. Drawings & Notes uses a broad definition of drawing: a work on paper – whatever medium is used –  is a drawing. An oil painting which shows a strong drawing hand  is too. A  gesture in air is a drawing, as is a collection of accidental marks on a wall. Words and scribbles on a partiture can be a drawing. And a smudge on a teared sheet of paper can be a great start.
