Travelling – Drawing

Artspace artist John Brady at The Dock:
Travelling, Drawing

Friday 4th July official opening 6pm at The Dock / Carrick on Shannon
Exhibition continues to Saturday 30th August.

John Brady’s recent work is grounded in a commitment to seeing and encountering people and places in fresh, unmediated ways. In 2012/13, Brady took a year out from his art lecturing job to travel around the world and to draw. He posted 22 sketchbooks back to his home in Galway over the course of the year. For Brady, drawing becomes a social instrument as much as a graphic one; it provides a medium through which he ‘talks’ with people as he travels and a means of taking bearings in changing geographies.
