Eric Bainbridge Drawing Book is the first publication focussing on the sculptor’s drawings.
The book brings together a selection of Bainbridge’s works on paper from 1981 to the present day. The drawings, on gridded and lined paper as well as office stationary, illuminate many aspects of Bainbridge’s sculptural work, giving shape to his provisional ideas. Seen collectively, the drawings provide an insight into an artist tentatively working through things.
The book also features an essay by curator and writer George Vasey as well as a conversation between London-based sculptors Rebecca Ackroyd and Athena Papadopoulos.
Co-published by Art Editions North and CIRCA Projects.
Accompanies the exhibition Eric Bainbridge: Potholes, Northern Gallery of Contemporary Art, Sunderland (April-Jun 2016), and Workplace Gallery, London (Nov-Dec 2016).
