Interview with Deanna Petherbridge
16/04/17 Interview: Deanna Petherbridge Deanna Petherbridge Whitworth Art Gallery 2 December 2016 - 4 June 2017
With a retrospective exhibition, showing pen and ink drawings from
across a 45-year career, currently on show at the Whitworth Gallery in
Manchester, and the publication last year of a major new monograph, Deanna
Petherbridge: Drawing and Dialogue, Petherbridge (b1939, Pretoria, South
Africa) is certainly having a moment. Recently returned from India, and already
planning ahead to her next solo exhibition in the autumn, she nevertheless made
time to welcome Studio International to her home-cum-studio in Islington, north
London, to discuss the value and democracy of drawing, a medium she has
championed throughout her career.
