Vitamin D3 Out Now

Rachel Goodyear is included in the latest instalment of this indispensable survey of contemporary drawing, chosen by the world's leading art experts.


Over the past 50 years, drawing has been elevated from a supporting role to a primary medium, ranking alongside painting as a central art form. Since the publication of Vitamin D (2005) and D2 (2013), contemporary artists have continued to explore drawing's possibilities - from intimate to large-scale works, in a diversity of mark-making processes and materials. Vitamin D3 showcases more than 100 such artists, nominated by more than 70 international art experts.


To coincide with the release of the publication, Goodyear was interviewed by Phaidon on the topic of 'Why I Draw':

The Vitamin D3 featured artist tells us about the immediacy of drawing, the hardest thing to get right, and the difference between drawing as a child and as an artist.
