Thursday Thought: Stephen Farthing

‘Perhaps the most interesting question is how people define drawing today. For instance, is photography part of drawing? It is a way of harvesting information in the world – you put the images into your computer, shuffle them, reorganize them and make sense of it. It could be that between a camera and a computer, it is not very different from how Turner used a sketch book and brought it back into the studio’. -Stephen Farthing, The Inexorable Rise of Drawing, Annabel Tilley, pg. 4.
