DESCRIPTION

Gallery Espace presents nine artists with ‘Works on Paper 2012’. The gallery has nurtured a tradition of exhibitions on paper with ‘Drawing ’94’ (1994), ‘The Lyric Line’ (2006) and ‘Keep Drawing’ (2008) and more recently ‘Narratives of the Self: Autobiographies’ (2012), based on personal histories of the artists. ‘Works on paper’ is in continuum to the previously held shows and further explore artists’ preference towards the medium of paper. From life studies of mundane objects to their relationship with the habitat, their visual articulations seek deeper meanings of being. Their quest to understand mysteries of the self and the spiritual is perceptible in the delicate handling of the medium. Paper makes possible that intimacy, rendering interesting and varied visual vocabularies, offering simultaneously a spontaneous relationship of the artist with his artwork. This connection and familiarity enables delving into the core of existence, exploring, discovering, submerging, outgrowing and gradual detachment and pursuit of the unknown. When does the process of creating become a way of living the search on paper is noticeable in the whole gamut of this exhibition.
