The Drawing Room Drawing: Sculpture
Drawing: Sculpture

14th Feb - 6th Apr 2013

Drawing has always been an essential tool to the sculptor, and many sculptors have carried their experimentation with materials into work on paper.  For many sculptors there is a clear demarcation between the two disciplines, and many sculptors make drawings that are autonomous, and independent of their work in three dimensions. The practice of drawing and of sculpture is intimately linked in the practice of these international artists.  The point at which an artwork becomes a sculpture as distinct from a drawing can, in instances, be blurred.  Some of the artists produce works on paper that fall within the more traditional definition of drawing.  Yet it is rare for these works on paper to be exhibited in isolation from the 3-D work - there is reciprocity between the two.
