Line/Extended brings together five artists whose work explores the potential of the drawn line and the expanded field of drawing. The exhibition investigates a more interrogative approach to drawing – one that extends outwards into a variety of mediums and disciplines.

Artists Rosana AntolĂ­, Lucy Brown, George Eksts, Jane Grisewood and Andrea V Wright – whose works span traditional drawings on paper through to performative and site-specific pieces made especially for this exhibition – take their various lines for a walk around the three-dimensional space of the gallery. There is a sense of action in their works – whether live, latent, captured or documented. The opening event for the exhibition will include a participatory live “blind” drawing performance by Jane Grisewood.

Line/Extended celebrates drawing across the diverse practices of the exhibiting artists. AntolĂ­, Brown, Eksts, Grisewood and Wright have all uniquely defined, or redefined, drawing based on their chosen context and personal focus.

The exhibition coincides with the national Big Draw Festival – the world’s biggest celebration of drawing.
