PONTIAC, MICHIGAN.-The Museum of New Art presents Drawing You In, on view through December 30, 2005, curated by Narine Kchikian and Jacque Liu. There is no way to make a drawing - there is only drawing. Anything you can project as expressive in terms of drawing - ideas, metaphors, emotions, language structures - results from the act of doing. Drawing is a verb. - Richard Serra.
The physical act of drawing has taken artists’ explorations beyond the two-dimensional plane. Works are no longer limited to the surface. Contemporary drawings often create as much dialogue about the discipline itself as they do about the depicted subject matter.
Drawing You In presents six artists whose work challenges conventional perceptions of drawing. Exploring the relationship of the process of unfolding the idea to the space, these works invite the audience to discover what a drawing is, and what a drawing does.
Featuring: Mike Andrews, Japeth Mennes, Abigail Newbold, Mikolaj Szoska, Gregory Tom, and Rebecca Tufts.
