Drawing is said to have the ability to record both its own making and the movement of the thoughts and body of the drawer.

Drawology brings together the work of several artists with differing practices, it aims to consider whether this premise is applicable to a specific process or genre of drawing or whether it is applicable to drawing generally.

In this respect the works in the exhibition represent an expanded field of contemporary drawing in a Fine Art context to include: works on paper, performance, moving image, installation, projections and three-dimensional drawings. The exhibition is part of a larger research project currently being undertaken by Deborah Harty entitled Drawing is Phenomenology.
