Works on paper


20.11.15 > 19.12.15


Valérie Bach gallery is pleased to present a group show gathering eleven artists on the theme of drawing and/or paper-based artworks. Whether attached to painting, sculpture or installation, drawing remains a common process in the work of each artist. For some of them, it is an artwork on its own; for others it represents a step of the creative process. The practice of drawing is perceived as the free and direct expression of the artist’s mind. These works drag us into the artist’s intimacy and establish a close relationship with the viewer.

Works on Paper, title of the exhibition, presents artworks focusing on various topics ranging from utopia to ecology, from individual to society’s evils, to abstraction or reflection on space. The drawing provides an area of freedom, privileged place of experience and research, as well as numerous possibilities of treatments. Mine graphite, colored pencil, felt, oil or watercolors, the artists of this exhibition explore the infinite possibilities of paper.
