The Centre for Recent Drawing is pleased to present works by two contemporary artists who embrace drawing as part of their practice. Donald and Tilson are both interested in the world of drawings used for advertising, especially the use of logos for high end fashion lines. For this exhibition Tilson focussed on the drawing as a finished work rather than a preparation for one of her paintings, thus giving the drawings space and an open, fresh feel. They follow Warhol's Do It Yourself aesthetic, one work boldly showing a Sims building whilst another builds layer upon layer of fashion pattern prints. Donald's highly technical and intricate drawings display a real love of draughtsmanship and the processes involved. Both artists have a clear perception of the image they want to draw and recreate giving a flat, pared down, unfussy feel. The images often evoke feelings of times past - the glory days - be that Italia '90 or the dawn of motoring.
