Drawing has been key throughout Willats’ practice, often as a signifier of larger ideas. From the start of his career in the early 1960s, Willats has rejected aesthetic expression in favour of positioning his drawings as active ‘data’, which offer a means to communicate a way of looking at and thinking about our environment.
REPRESENTING THE POSSIBLE comprises four large-scale site-specific wall drawings that will transform the gallery’s architecture into an immersive drawn environment with thirty-seven individual works floating upon their surfaces.
