“Good drawing always goes beyond appearances.” Philip Rawson
‘Beyond Appearances’ brings together a variety of artists ranging from the North West, Edinburgh and London, who put great significance on drawing within their practice. Drawing is used by artists to observe, explore, record and respond to the world around them. It helps to create and define an individual visual vocabulary. For many artists drawing is the purest form of expression.
This exhibition presents us with an array of languages as used by these artists in their respective practices, providing an insight into the eloquence and value of drawing in art today.
The work showcased demonstrates how technically diverse and interesting drawing can be and celebrates some of the inherent qualities found in good drawing such as intimacy, directness, spontaneity and expressive freedom.
This exhibition opens on June 7th with a private view from 6-9pm and runs until June 30th. Additional events will be held during the exhibition, details soon.
