SKETCH 2017

Barker, Garry (2017) SKETCH 2017. [Show/Exhibition]

Abstract

A competition and touring exhibition SKETCH, aims to promote the diversity and importance of drawing and the role of the sketchbook in contemporary creative practice. SKETCH is the UK’s only art prize for artist’s sketchbooks with a dedicated touring sketchbook exhibition. This competition is only held once every four years and as first prize winner there should be an opportunity to hold a solo exhibition alongside the launch of the next exhibition in 2021. Sketchbooks are an integral part of my practice, both as a way of collecting observational information as I walk the streets and have conversations with people, and as a way of developing ideas back in the studio for allegorical drawings, installations and ceramics. The winning of first prize meant that I had the opportunity to open my work out into new material territories.
