Drawing Centre Newcastle Region Art Gallery 2005
NRAG has one of the best collections of 20th century Australian drawing, rivaled only by the major state galleries. The exhibition was divided into two elements: a survey of twentieth-century Australian drawing, including contemporary works drawn directly onto the Gallery wall and a second subsidiary part, testing the limits of what drawing might mean in the context of so called digital drawing generated through computer graphic programs. A catalogue essay outlined the curatorial argument.
For the main installation I took the radical option to treat the walls as a ground to “draw” a very tight horizontal hang “line” around the walls PUNCTUATED by three full vertical breaks on each of the three main walls where invited artists, Jane Lander, graham lang and lee zaunders, created floor to ceiling two-metre wide drawings
