Drawing for Understanding the Architecture of Anatomy

Tuesday, 7 February, 6.30-8pm
Location: Studio, 26 Exmouth Market, EC1 4QE 

In this talk Fay Penrose will consider how complex shapes and spaces, as found in both anatomical and built architecture, are readily explored via drawing, particularly in the early exploratory phases of understanding. In her work as an anatomist she uses drawing for many reasons including quick sketching on the back of a dissection guide in an anatomy class, illustrating scientific papers or observational drawings for deeper engagement with the subject and referring to other people’s drawings. Working drawings allow deep thinking and conceptual challenges to be addressed in an immediate and accessible way. We will look at how communication to students and clients is often facilitated via a quick sketch, either to simplify or expand on areas that are hard to understand.
