Drawing Book by Eric Bainbridge

This is the first publication focusing on the drawings of British sculptor Eric Bainbridge. The book brings together works on paper by Bainbridge from 1981 to the present day and includes writing by curator George Vasey alongside an interview between Athena Papadopoulos and Rebecca Ackroyd on the artist’s work. The selected drawings include preliminary sketches for potential sculptures, lists, notes and observational drawings of everyday objects that form a sketchbook of the artist’s backstage processes. The works, often drawn quickly in pen or pencil on office stationary paper, illuminate many aspects of Bainbridge’s practice. Sifting through these drawings, we’re subject to a lexicon of characters and motifs that deconstruct the everyday.
