Abstract

Some of the faces I saw between September 2007 and July 2008 is an 84cm x 114cm ink drawing exhibited as part of The Jerwood Drawing Prize. The drawing examines what the process of drawing from memory might reveal about the methods we use to store and recall the faces of large numbers of people. My first year of teaching began in 2007 and the motivation for undertaking this investigation arose from a deep apprehension at remembering over one hundred and sixty student names and faces. The drawing was the result of repetition and routine and had self-imposed rules which included drawing one student, from memory, at the end of a working day.

The drawing was one of 63 selected from a total of 2,537 for the 2008 exhibition. The selectors were Tony Bevan, Emma Dextor and John McDonald. Other exhibiting artists included Andrew Penketh, Sharon Leahy-Clark, Lia Anna Hennig, Ben Coode-Adams and Emma Talbot.

Some of the faces I saw between September 2007 and July 2008 is included in a catalogue and a touring exhibition (17th September – 26th October 2008
