The Draughtsman Delight
A Group Show of Figurative and Abstract Drawings and Work on Paper
Drawing is a form of visual expression and is one of the major forms within the visual arts. Drawing is a visual art that makes use of any number of drawing instruments to mark a two-dimensional medium. By the 12th-13th centuries AD, monks preparing illuminated manuscripts on vellum or parchment in monasteries throughout Europe were using lead styli to draw lines for their writings and for the outlines for their illuminations. Soon artists generally were using silver to make drawings and under drawings. Initially they used and re-used wooden tablets with prepared ground for these drawings. When paper became generally available from the 14th century onwards, artists' drawings, both preparatory studies and finished works, became increasingly common. Drawings are chosen by many artists also for further use as a modified gesture in digital and traditional image creating processes like printing or in the combination of different techniques in elaborate Mixed Media artwork.
The exhibition at OMC Gallery includes different positions of German and American Artists using a variety of distinguished techniques.
