Performing Drawology: Featured Artist: Martin Lewis 03 February 2016

Martin Lewis is a Nottingham-based artist and PhD research student at Nottingham Trent University.  He also teaches at Loughborough University.

Lewis’ practice explores drawing and thinking as an embodied activity with the focus of the drawing on its act rather than its outcome as an artefact.  The drawings employ simple lines or marks repeated over and over using pre-determined instructions.  The most recent work involves drawing directly with my fingers onto a purpose built amplified ‘desk’ employing sound as the drawings medium. participating in Performing Drawology connects closely to Lewis’ current PhD research providing a critical context for him to test out a live enquiry in conceptual and performative terms in the form of a durational performance-action exploring ideas of drawing and attention.

– We recommend that you download the NHS COVID-19 app in advance of your visit and check in via the QR code when you arrive.
