AboutThe first of our Making Groups will be an informal collaborative drawing experience based around themes and issues raised in our current exhibition Drawing Room.
The group will be led by artist Sarah Macdonald and will explore the practice of making field drawings as a way of interpreting the built environment.
Sarah Macdonald (b. 1977, London) lives and works in London. Macdonald received her BA from Goldsmiths 1997-2000 and her MFA frpm the Slade School of Fine Art 2007-2009. She is a recipient of the Clare Winsten Memorial Award (2009). Macdonald's paintings, often large scale, are layered surfaces of planes of colour and nuances of tone which endeavour to explore the form and space and light studied in her line drawings made directly from architecture.
