The gallery recently received a proposal from an artist to create a mural in the gallery using principles of automatic drawing. This raised questions around whether work can really be created truly automatically. Does the artist eventually have to intervene to make conscious decisions about the work? Does process based work offer a framework to free the artist from the conscious decision? How might materials and processes shape or influence work of this type? Artists were asked to submit work that explores these questions.
Exhibiting artists: Jonathan Bentall, Ian Campbell Briggs, Kathleen Fox, Steven Foy, Annie Halliday, Emma Harding, Russell Scott Skinner
