The surrealists referred to the term Exquisite Corpse and it is this term that best defines the nature of Irvine and Nobles practice. Each artist begins a drawing, the works are then exchanged over a period time to evolve the image until a satisfactory level of completion has been reached. Their drawn styles share a symbiotic relationship on paper, each artist bringing his own style and crucial reaction to the visual challenges set by the other, creating an organic and ever evolving narrative. Irvine and Noble have continued their practice over the years by air mailing drawings between Taiwan, Hong Kong and Scotland.
This work ‘Granite Resonance’, has got in to the Jerwood Drawing Prize and is on show in London until the end of October and then traveling around UK.

This concept of questioning the self from a confrontation with trusted structures of knowledge resonates with a conceptual aim I hope to acknowledge through my degree show. As Blake said “man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.”Cavernous limitations of passively accepted cultural realities. The worst mistake is to see any cultural perspectives as true, for they are the invisible ropes that man has anchored himself to make order and meaning from cosmic chaos.
I am attracted to use the museological effect in this way, as a tool to facilitate in the viewer a personal experience. Utilising such methods, many artists have assumed this take "rather than being directly critical, they tend to be more interested in making viewers aware of rigid systems of interpretation , thus encouraging them to question rather than passively accept the official version of things."
