Some aspects of drawing practice

June 1st to June 30th

Drawing is paradoxically both better and worse off than it has ever been.  As the first way in which humans made sense of their surroundings visually it remains central to the idea of our visual culture, at the same time the advent of technology has made it – for many artists – utterly redundant.  It features rarely in many contemporary art events.  But there is still a great deal of energy in the making of marks and the most recent technologies available are propelling the idea of drawing into new territories.  In this show I’ve put together five artists whose works make a journey from drawing as narrative to drawing as idea.  Where drawing has been and remains to where drawing might be in the future.
