Out of Line - Drawings by Joe Graham & Jayne Wilton - winners of 2010 One Church Street Drawing open submission


Entrants to this nationwide open submission were encouraged to interpret drawing as broadly as possible and Joe Graham's and Jayne Wilton's work particularly impressed the judges in taking both the concept and physicality of drawing into new and unexpected territory. Using traditional and non-traditional drawing methods, Jayne Wilton's work explores making visible the human breath. By capturing breath's condensation, she records it as beautifully etched copper plates, as embossed paper reliefs, as graphite drawings, or via a light source on to sensitised paper. Finally, made specially for this exhibition, suspended, blown glass forms describe the volume and echo the fragility and resilience of breath. Joe Graham's work derives from a process involving repetitive copying, using the mistakes inherent in the copying process to generate new forms. As in Chinese whispers, each new image in the sequence is an imperfect copy of the previous, usually beginning with a source image to start the process rolling. Each time he makes a copy certain marks are lost in the copying process and new marks have to be added. On this occasion, rather than beginning with an image, Graham has chosen Lewis Carroll's written description of the Jubjub Bird, from his nonsense poems Jabberwocky and The Hunting of the Snark, as the starting point for this series. Preliminary drawings are in pencil but subsequent processes include digital mark-making, overlaying and printing.
