Contemporary Drawing56ac38196d183aa1687562486f1d8c34.jpg


Contemporary drawing maybe more than any other form of art is meant to express and expose; feelings, emotions, thoughts, fears, joy, love and hate. Whatever it is that makes us human, like the cave man became human to us through his drawings, contemporary drawing accomplished this. How, because it is immediate?Its Maybe done quickly, and alone? It is intimate like that poem you write in a diary or a boy might right to his girlfriend. Not really for anybody else to see or read. But you are and artist and you have a need to exchange or exhibit yourself.

So why should we care? I know, I know! It's because we are not different we share experiences and emotions and it is good to know that we are not alone or that someone found a voice for you when you could not. Another reason is because it opens us up to experience new emotions or images like going to different kinds of films or say, sports events. Tennis? Badminton? Anyone - hey anybody???

Now I would never say you should like everything or just anything. I certainly do not. But, we should know why we do or don't like or dislike something. I mean Carl Andrea stacking split logs or laying squares of metal on the floor. Do I walk on it? How do I deal with this? How do I read it? Is there anything there I can identify with? How does it make me feel? These are things that make us sensitive human beings and not in a funny way!!!??? but in a positive creative way.
