Join practicing artist Richard Kenton Webb, Programme Leader BA (Hons) Drawing & Print at UWE Bristol as he explores the question of how drawing can be used as a tool, as a way of thinking and to uncover the unconscious and deep mysteries that lie within ourselves.
Using reflections on the writings of Wilfred Bion, Jacques Lacan and DW Winnicott, along with the experiences of a recent two-month international residency in the depths of Tasmania, Australia, he shows examples of a journey of discovery.
