Neil Drabble - BA Photography Associate Lecturer
Neil Drabble’s art is inspired by his everyday life, whether that's rolling a pair of socks, taking a photograph on his phone or rearranging things in the fridge.
His holistic approach to critical thinking and active experimentation in sculpture, painting, text, performance and photography drives his practice to make one piece of work each day. Drabble's More Beautiful Than Canova frames an elegant glob of shaving foam as a rival to the Italian neo-classical sculptor Antonio Canova; a humorously fleeting masterpiece to match some of Venice’s greatest treasures, if only for a few seconds.
Drabble’s work is regularly exhibited in the UK and internationally, featuring at galleries and museums including Tsinghua University Visual Art Centre (Beijing), Stone Crop Gallery (Maine, USA), Gooden Gallery, Form Content, APT (all London), and his work is featured in several prominent collections at London's Victoria & Albert Museum and National Portrait Gallery.
Drabble launched and curated Public House Projects in 2012, a Peckham gallery space supporting the work of emerging and established artists, and has also written several books including Sampler, Shibboleth and Tree Tops Tall.
