... Line as Thought, Lines as Universe ...
... Line as Thought, Lines as Universe ... is an exhibition examining contemporary drawing practices in comparison with some pioneers of abstract drawing from the past several decades. The exhibition concept was first inspired by drawings made by the late Romanian artist, Alina Popa. During an illness and leading up to her death in 2019, Alina Popa produced an incredible body of drawings that profoundly depicted her experience.
The other exhibited drawings in the exhibition veer into various conceptual and expressive directions, exploring the potential that drawing as an art form presents for depicting the inexpressible and the intangible, as well as circumnavigating ideas, space and the unknown in visual form, and ultimately testing the limits of language and thought.
Artists: William Anastasi, Nina Canell, Carlfriedrich Claus, Attila Csörgő, Christoph Fink, Habima Fuchs, Nikolaus Gansterer & Alex Arteaga, Monika Grzymala, Karel Malich, Isabel Nolan, Morgan O’Hara, Alina Popa, Stuart Sherman.
