Burrowing under the apparent: the blindfold drawings of Claude Heath

Craig Staff, Frances Guerin (Editor)

Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapter

Abstract

Working blindfold from a range of personally selected objects, between 1995 – 2000 the artist Claude Heath produced a series of drawings that were borne out of a process of not looking. Along with examining this facet of Heath’s practice in relation to historical precedent, the purpose of this chapter is to consider the implications this series of drawings carry, both in terms of artistic agency and in terms of how they might come to be read. As a result, Heath’s practice is understood as entailing a particular form of not looking that engenders, paradoxically, a particular set of images to be looked at.
