Cityscape 3in x 3in detail from 36in drawing

Jeanne Woodcraft’s work is rooted in the idea of measurement, and the way in which it governs our lives. Approaching drawing as a rigorous discipline, Woodcraft’s practice explores the phenomenology of mark-making as both unconscious and conscious gesture. There are four themes.

1: The direct observational drawings of the figure/body analyse both structure and function of the anatomy.
2: The Renaissance transcriptions are highly technical interpretations that explore principles of divinity within geometry. Motivated by early research into the parallels between Renaissance art and computer generated imaging.
3: Landscape. Is a representation of space, the x y & z axis where perspective is a metaphor for time.
Scale, ratio evaluation, definition & metaphor, substance/reality inform the above.
4: In contrast, the ‘doodles’ – mindscapes - stem from a process of automatic drawing, resulting in the articulation of the psyche in images and patterns, unimpeded by cognitive logic.
