Richard Schofield will describe the process that a visual artist/illustrator goes through when interpreting the written word and transposing it into a different medium. He will refer to a recent project in which he responded to the novel Pincher Martin, by William Golding (1956), producing a compact visual 'equivalent'. This creative journey required a good degree of immersion, that undoubtedly surpasses a literal analysis of the written word. This is an illustrated talk which will also relate other experiences, references and research which contributed to this process.
Talk by Dr Richard Schofield from Birmingham City University.
Part of the Reading Art Project in collaboration with Birmingham City University and Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
