Quirkism showcases the work of four artists working across two dimensions, interested in peculiarity. A quirk is a single odd detail that's stumbled upon. Rather than halting process, this interruption is the starting point for making art. Quirks are also idiosyncrasies that make up character. This group exhibition suggests that the artist's personality is synchronous with process. Despite difference in technique, all four artists begin with drawing; initial progress is hence the stage closest to human contact. In Quirkism, the original details that inspire the artworks are given over to process, which is drawn out or reduced as to test its temporality. However, the time spent on each piece is not entirely limited by technique but by the artists' control, which is maintained or let go of during process. Quirkism, then, is revealed as a faux ideology - ironically playful and equally audacious.
