Sabbatical Art Pilgrimage: Supervision questions

Earlier in the weekend I had a very useful initial supervision session for my Sabbatical with Mark Lewis of commission4mission.

Mark is a jeweller and silversmith who has a longstanding interest in contemporary approaches to landscape drawing and painting. He was a principal lecturer at The Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design until 2009 and presently teaches part-time at the School of Jewellery, Birmingham Institute of Art and Design and the Goldsmiths’ Centre in London. Drawing has always been central to his practice and recent work has focused on gestural and mark-making approaches to create forms of visual shorthand. Mark promotes these techniques in a variety of educational contexts as methods of capturing the essence of form and structure and as a stimulus to creative thinking.

Through the discussion we had about my Sabbatical plans we identified the following areas of focus:

  • telling the art historical story of modern Church commissions including factors leading to commissions and issues addressed during the commissioning process and beyond;
  • exploring if and how use is made of the artworks viewed in the context of the specific and wider Church; and
  • observing reactions and responses to the artworks in the context of worship.

The Frames - Rise.
