Subjects to hand: JOANNA MARGARET PAUL DRAWING examines in depth the artist's drawings – a central aspect of her art. Paul's exquisite graphic touch and ardent observation of the visual world have long been appreciated by those who cherish the tradition of drawing. This exhibition is premised on a conviction that her drawings also have fresh currency in a contemporary art context.
Paul's dedication and alertness to the visual world is palpable in this exhibition, in her drawings of everyday subjects including children, bowling greens, chess players, swimming pools, beach fires and lighthouses, even views from aeroplanes and buses. Nothing was beneath her notice.
