Instructional Drawings @ Bus Projects

“The drawing shows me at a glance what might be spread over ten pages in a book…” - from the novel Fathers and Sons by Ivan S. Turgenev, 1862.

A simple drawing will quite often promote better understanding of a subject than words are able. Instructional Drawings is a collection of paintings derived from small diagrams used to facilitate teaching with students at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA).

In Instructional Drawings, these sketches that were once tools to engender comprehension become catalysts to drive invention. The structures and systems each drawing once represented is adopted as a departure point for these paintings. The accepted modes of reading are now challenged, while the irrational and irregular are favoured over the familiar and mathematical.

Compelled by a desire to create new architectures, Instructional Drawings embraces unexpected forms to motivate exploration into preconceived approaches to composition and form. The resolved paintings trace a journey of reinvention while remaining a reflection of their original stimulus.
