Re-take/Re-invent is a group exhibition project at Fine Art, Bangor University, looking at the art collection of the National Museum Wales as a start point for an exploration of studio practice. The paper will examine the role of drawing in the investigation and development of new ideas from the works chosen. Fifteen artists have taken part in the project with different approaches to drawing being at the forefront of several portfolios. As a result, strategies for thinking through drawing have been exposed that might not have been at the forefront of the artist’s usual practice.
