Tania Kovats, Drawing Water


Drawing – both her own and other people’s – is a key part of Tania Kovats’s practice, and she has long been interested in what drawing can do. In this book she brings together an eclectic selection of drawings of the sea, both her own and other people’s.

Tania Kovats’s Ocean exhibition ran from 15 March – 25 May 2014 at The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh.

Tania Kovats believes that drawing is a mechanism for exploration as much as a tool for representation. In this beautiful book, she brings together drawings by map-makers, writers, shipbuilders, whalers, soldiers, sailors, artists, archaeologists, cartographers, scientists, uranographers, engineers and dreamers – a diverse selection united by the sense that in making the drawing they are looking for something.
