The group show offers a selection of works from 12 artists, each with a different approach to creating image, meaning or emotion through the application of line to surface. The exhibition aims to demonstrate the open nature and complexity of the often overlooked and undervalued medium, which is so often regarded as a form of draft rather than fully realised work. Drawing as a medium offers an undiluted and immediate form of expression. The marks made by the artist cannot be hidden or clothed behind further working, evoking a personal and intimate portrait of the artist.
‘Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad’ - Salvador Dali -
