Thursday Thought: Angela Kingston

‘Drawing was becoming crucially important in the mid-eighties. Suddenly a lot of women artists were drawing as their main thing. Women drew because painting had such a loaded history and drawing seemed to be light on its feet and more possible for women to venture into. The work of Sue Arrowsmith and the large drawings on canvas by Avis Newman seemed massively important. I believe drawing developed in prominence at this time as an antidote to the super-confident and self-important YBA work of the late eighties.’
