This exhibition, organised as part of the wider international aspects of the Drawing Group, comprised 8 individuals engaged with a discourse on drawing as a means of critique and as a vehicle for reflective practice.The exhibition was curated by Drew Plunkett (Glasgow School of Art). The catalogue ISBN 978 1 905527 20 5, with an accompanying introduction by Plunkett, includes statements from all participants. The exhibition has subsequently been shown at the Glasgow School of Art (2006), the College of Fine Arts, NSW University (2007) and been the subject of a public seminar at The Collection, Lincoln (2006). Bingham’s six drawings (example scale 21 x 38cms) resulted from a reappraisal of works originally concerned with the creation of new profiles for redundant objects. These new drawings assimilate previous peripheral and fleeting references as potential for the development a more substantive presence. Reflective practice in this instance was a process of analysis, a means to edit and to critically focus on emergent themes, making significant the incidental reference, and engaging with drawing as a means of introspective enquiry. The latter was subsequently further explored in a paper ‘Drawing over the page (checking the health of the patient)’ presented at the Drawing Board symposium (July 06) ISBN 1860502091 at Lincoln. Participation in the wider, national debate resulted in an opportunity to chair and report on proceedings of a discussion group at Networking in Drawing Research, a one day forum at Wimbledon College of Art (2007) held in partnership with the Drawing Research Network. Proceedings published in ‘Drawing: The Network’ ISBN 978 1 906203 05 4.
