Drawing research

Drawing as research is rapidly becoming embedded within post-graduate practices. This link to Kiera O'Toole’s website is a good introduction to the way that post graduate research in drawing can be undertaken. In particular Kiera O'Toole’s work is focused on how personal experiences can shape practice-led research. She “measures and examines the mark as a form of language” and understands drawing research as both “a knowing and a making”.
Her practice is concerned with a variety of drawing processes and methodologies, which include material investigation, the physical act of drawing, the sound of drawing, drawing as sculpture and performative works.
