THE THINKING LINE
Using John Berger's categorisations of drawing as observation, communication and exorcism as a framework, this exhibition tracks links between 20th century and contemporary artists.
Hung alongside work from the British Council collection, this exhibition includes work by Canterbury Christ Church University alumni and staff as well as significant drawings by artists such as Maggi Hambling, Michael Sandle, David Nash, Euan Uglow, Kenneth Armitage and Michael Craig-Martin.
Existing or coming into being at the same period; of today or of the present. The term that designates art being made today.
The depiction of shapes and forms on a flat surface chiefly by means of lines although colour and shading may also be included. Materials most commonly used are pencil, ink, crayon, charcoal, chalk and pastel, although other materials, including paint, can be used in combination.
