Imagine, Observe, Remember 

Imagine, Observe, Remember by RAG Member Peter Blegvad
Designed by Colin Sackett. Published by Uniformbooks in association with Amateur Enterprises.

Over 250 illustrations in both colour and b/w, printed on four different paper stocks. Imagine, Observe, Remember is partly a memoir, a portrait of the artist as he develops his craft from what is possibly his first drawing to his current status of seasoned practitioner. It is also a series of meditations, observations, quotes, images and instructions that will constitute a valuable resource for artists, writers, teachers and any reader who agrees that the uncharted wilderness within is worthy of exploration.

Featured in Monocle

Much of his work is made from found objects and revolves around the notion of chance. He invites people to choose six numbers out of 59 which will dictate which works he brings to show.

RAG Lockdown online show

RAG Members: Mike Abrahams, Susan Bazin, Lynne Beel, Natalia Bobrova, G. Calvert, Grazyna Cydzik, Emma Davis, Lucille Dweck, Brian Deighton, Shona Elrick, Saadeh George, Sarah Granville, Jim Sitch, Celia Toler, Greta Wakil and Stephen Williams

The work originated in a proposal by Grazyna Cydzik sent out to RAG members during Lockdown to make one drawing every day for four weeks beginning 25 April. To coincide with the easing of Lockdown in England, the project was extended to 31 May 2020.

There were two constraints: every drawing should take exactly half an hour and was to be made using materials already available at home. The rationale for this was to allow artists to explore their concept of a drawing. Throughout the project most of the group came together weekly on Zoom to resolve ongoing issues. Sixteen RAG members took part, contributing 454 drawings in a variety of media including photographs and film.
