Gerard Deighan

Gerard Deighan attends Project Ability's Aspire programme.

Gerard's practice is all about drawing. In his depictions of throwing events for Let the Games Begin Part 2, he created his javelin and hammer throwers by what seems like one seamless line, demonstrating drawing's ability to encode movement. Gerard's directness in drawing is shown through the physicality of the gesture and the heaviness of the charcoal which appear to move across the surface of the page.
