Gaffney, Sheila (2021) After the Jugness of the Jug: a drawing to make sculpture from. Method: plan & elevation with a touch of embodied dreaming thrown in. [Artefact]

Abstract

The output is a drawing by Sheila Gaffney made using graphite and charcoal on paper. Research Process: 'After The Jugness of the Jug' was made using plan and elevation drawing methods. Measurement was used to explore the relationships between surfaces, gaps and edges and was the process by which the material world was observed whilst stripping away the subject matter of the things looked at. Use of drawing systems enabled the artist to process their observations whilst making graphic marks on a paper surface, and turn touch into a register of thought through the conflation of mental and somatic activity. Research Insights: The resulting drawing is an example of what a drawing system can offer an artist, that is, such methods enable holding information, both technical and psychological, for sourcing at another time. Dissemination: The drawing was shortlisted for the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2021 and subsequently exhibited at Trinity Buoy Wharf (London, 18 November – 5 December 2021), Drawing Projects UK (Trowbridge, 8 January – 5 March 2022), and Cooper Gallery (Dundee, 19 March – 16 April 2022). There was also a book of artworks selected for the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing prize 2021 published through Drawing Projects UK which features Gaffney’s drawing.
