CURRENT: Sculptor’s Drawings

Sculptors tend to look for different things in drawing than other artists – relating to materials, space, scale and finish. For Dave King drawings act not as designs for sculpture but as preparatory stages towards realisation. Sculptor’s Drawing (above) began life as a preliminary drawing for the sculpture Think Fast, Act Slow commissioned for the exhibition A Good Age at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen in Bovey Tracey in 2019 and then took on a life of its own. Sculpture is usually thought of as static but the trolley in Sculptor’s Drawing suggests mobility – a potential for movement of something too heavy to lift.
