Visited the exhibition of the Jerwood Drawing Prize at the DLI gallery yesterday. Good mix of approaches to interpreting what it means to draw.

There was  an exhibition of  drawings  by Newcastle based artist Nick Kennedy who employs strict systems to examine the idea of serendipity. Found Nick’s work really intriguing.
