And if you don’t know how it relates to Turner Contemporary and the “Risk” exhibition, read my post http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/2015/10/risk-in-margate-at-turner-contemporary.html
Anyway when I got back here last time to write the post I couldn’t remember if it was dragons or elephants on the pot, no photography in the exhibition, see.
So first thing I does, actually first thing I does when I gets to the gallery is put my coat in a locker and go to the toilet – disabled one actually because I wanted to sing fairly loud and didn’t want to spoil anyone's aim in the gents. Yep first thing I does is go up into the gallery and ask for an adjustable gallery chair to sit on so I can sketch the pot.
Quick pen sketch of the seismograph, which the gallery have wrongly labelled a seismometer please note this is a sketch to remember the thing by and not a sketch of the thing.
One big problem about sketching anything not vegetable or mineral is that you tend to come away from the thing feeling a bit like you have made love to it, the dragon wouldn’t let me draw its teeth, as you can see.
If I was going to lecture a group of students about the relationship between art and science, I would say “There is no relationship between art and science.” and then spend the rest of the lecture sketching the students, and refusing to say anything else about the subject.
I was feel a bit burnt out after the dragon so went off to the gallery and drew some young people, as if the animal is human and alive there is a sort of return energy, so thanks.
On to Crampton Tower in Broadstairs where my children did “Slot Racing” and pressed buttons.
