Sublinear: 5 Perspectives on drawing

25 Jun – 16 Jul 2011  5 visual artists to whom drawing is the mainstay of their creative practice.
24 June 7pm Private View opened by Professor Howard Riley, Swansea Metropolitan University

Five dedicated practitioners, each applying their individual intelligence of seeing, but to a common end: the sharing of experiences of the world – perceptual, emotional, and imaginational – through the selection and combination of visual elements; line, tone, shape, texture and colour. Such tangible representations in turn allow us, the viewers, to adopt, adapt our moods, our attitudes towards those experiences being shared, thus realising the potential of one of the fundamental social functions of art: to make the familiar strange – to stretch our perspective on life. Elysium: a state of ideal happiness. How apt!’
