Drawing People: The Human Figure in Contemporary Art

Poetic and prescient, this 2011 drawing for William Kentridge's animated film, Other Faces, is reproduced from Drawing People, D.A.P.'s essential new guide to the latest developments in international figuration. Drawing is the medium in which Kentridge thinks, according to author Roger Malbert's chapter on artists working on themes of social reality. "His procedure for making an animated film is to draw with charcoal, walking back across the studio to photograph the drawing, then walking back to the paper to erase or alter it, then back to the camera and so on, hundreds of times a day. The traces of erasure and change remain, giving a rippling fluidity to the narrative that helps him to present history and social experience an innovative ways. Preconceived ideas are kept to the minimum, and there is no storyboard; thinking evolves through activity."
