The Drawing Center and MOMA etc
Last night I finally had time to digest my experience at Ragdale. I think that it has resulted in a new drawing based approach to my practice. Before I left Brisbane I had been exploring painted geometric form and pattern but I think that I have now developed new techniques which will be line based to produce two and three dimensional works.
Today I went to an exhibition of work by the German surrealist artist and author Unica Zurn at the Drawing Centre. The works were beautiful delicate finely balanced images with elaborative patterning.
I then went to MOMA and saw another wonderful drawing based exhibition tangled alphabets, the works of South American Artists Leon Ferrari and Mira Schendel. I was so good that I am planning to go back maybe tomorrow.
I also got to see works by Barnett Newman and Agnes Martin among others.
