Shifting Lines

9 November 2013 – 19 January 2014

Six artists use line to investigate space and structure in unexpected ways.

Peter Trevelyan, Pip Culbert, Katie Thomas, Andrew Beck, and Gabriella Mangano and Silvana Mangano each approach the act of drawing differently: from tracing and rubbing, cutting and exposing, measuring and ruling, to using film and movement, or constructing with delicate pencil leads. With results that are as lively and varied as their tactics, the artists are yet connected by a willingness to test the strength and limits of structure and to engage with physical space. The exhibition invites us to redefine our ideas about drawing and to appreciate its modest unpredictability.
