Sat 9 November  2.30 – 4 pm: Artists’ Talk & Poetry Event. 6 poets will reading short poems about the concept and meaning of Lines.

The exhibition explores new ideas about the meaning of drawing, challenging unconscious perceptions of form and space. Drawing has become a metaphor for experimentation and innovation that defies any strict definition.  The show  questions how boundaries of contemporary drawing are pushed and asks questions about transitions between 2D and 3D.

Looking at how the artists work as individuals and primarily as artists means that the presence of their everyday processes is evident in the works, ranging from how they contemplate, make decisions, use their tools and reflect upon their practice. Some engage with the architecture of a particular space, whilst in other cases the works chosen for the exhibition are autonomous and self-contained and others might make use of paper in its original state or are preoccupied with the medium and its materiality.
