New York/Tampa, Signatures d’Artistes: Dessin
This is the first in a series of exhibitions, starting with drawing as "signature." Bleu Acier has invited artists from Haim Chanin Fine Arts of New York as a component of this exhibition.
Drawing is the most direct and immediate manner for an artist to express an idea and create an image. There is no way to hide behind a line. Intellect travels from a personal space into the public realm of the page. Many contemporary artists use drawing as a primary media or significant part of their oeuvre - not simply a preparatory step to painting, printmaking, sculpture or installation. Drawing allows the artist to freely investigate materials and technique, and to rapidly accelerate an idea - thereby providing the viewer with a dynamic record of an inspired thought as it unfolds.
