    . There is something irreducibly mysterious about the mind. The private, non-physical universe of another is unknowable—inevitably, we look to the world of the physical for a glimpse into the character of another. In viewing drawings, we bear witness to the mind. Few other actions can be so revealing, and few other opportunities exist to understand one another as fully. For those willing to look, drawing can resolve the terror of loneliness by offering contact with the mind of another.   There is a fudamental honesty to drawing - the work arrives unbroken, a response of the drawer’s instincts and thoughts translated through lines on paper. Using a diversity of approaches, these artist in "LINE" reveal themselves as they are: inventive, sublime, structured, playful, elegant, absurd – stripped of pretenses and artifice.

      Hidden behind the impressive displays of dexterity and artistic skill is an elusive peek into the personality and spirit of the artists. From poignant portraits to complex compositions to pieces that emphasize the process of drawing, these masterful renderings promise to give the viewer a glimpse into the minds of some of the most exciting emerging artists today.
