Visual Thought: A Peek Inside Artists Sketchbooks
Visual Thought, on display in the Kistner Atrium, gives visitors the chance to peek behind the curtain of creative thought via artists’ sketchbooks. Sketchbooks offer the space to experiment and tweak ideas. They capture moments of inspiration and are repositories to revisit ideas when there isn’t enough time to make each creation a reality. Looking at the inside of an artist’s sketchbook is like looking at a map of an artist’s creative thought.
“Most exhibitions highlight the tip of the iceberg, the finished pieces,” explained Graham. “This exhibition presents an opportunity to see what treasures are captured in the judgement-free zone of the sketchbook. What unexpected correlations and observations come about when the unconscious mind is given freedom to roam?”
