This exhibition looks at contemporary works on paper and in mixed media in which the elegance of line and the composition of design are carefully executed to create abstract examples of complex ideas and techniques. Dabbling between the intentional and the unintentional, these artworks represent a line in creation between the automated functions of expression, and the intentional, yet meticulous application of decisions. We explore when drawing a squiggly line, emanating from the subconscious of the artist becomes art and the subsequent, informed decision to apply color informs emotion and context.
