  • "Working It Out" at The Painting Center

    "Working It Out" at The Painting Center

    Exhibition: June 18 - July 27, 2013
    Opening Reception: Thursday, June 20th, 6-8pm


    "Working It Out" features 112 artists of all disciplines who begin their creative process with preparatory drawings. This enables visual problem solving throughout the execution of an artwork that is both fluid and beautiful. Drawing can be an exploration of materials, mark making, the emotional tenor of a piece, compositional arrangements or color. Working drawings are the visual manifestation of a work in progress; a working idea. Typically, this work is not seen by the public. These are private musings that reflect thought processes. They are, by definition, incomplete. This exhibition will allow the viewer to see the private world of the artist’s creative process.

    This work is about discovery. We looked for exploration rather than refinement: the beginnings of ideas rather than their execution. The pieces here show artists at their most personal ”working things out”. Happily, the forms these explorations take, are varied in both material and process. Some are 3 dimensional. Most, but not all, are works are on paper. Dimensions vary from 1 inch to 6 feet. Some use photography, printmaking and collage as well as the more traditional drawing media of pencil ink and color. Occasionally paper is added to change scale, shift perspective, or cover an earlier thought. There are erasures, corrections and emphatic marks. These represent an active field. We see artists making choices throughout these inventions. We viewers follow and contrast both thought and process.
