"During lockdown I have tried to closely observe the plant-life indoors which I have lived with for many years, but never really looked at. This is a sketch from this time." - Kathy Prendergast
For many, 2020 was the year for drawing and its absorbing immediacy, its accessibility and capacity for processing ideas, thoughts and emotions made it a vital tool for navigating uncertain times. Drawing Biennial 2021 showcases every imaginable technique and represents artists from a range of generations, backgrounds, and heritages. The exhibition culminates in an online auction in its final weeks, with works available to purchase from a starting bid of £300 – an unmissable chance to own works by established greats and discover emerging talent.
Drawing Biennial 2021 not only shines a light on the vibrancy and vitality of drawing today but also helps secure its future for tomorrow. Proceeds will support Drawing Room’s move to its permanent home in Bermondsey in 2022, where it can continue its exploration of the language of drawing.
