This show is based on a series of simple observations about the drawing process. The creative process itself often has its origins in drawing. In this view, drawing comes about from a succession of traces, impulses and sensations that form an enduring diary for the artist.

The curators have developed this theme in as many ways as possible, showing a range of methods and subjects, in an attempt to capture the unrehearsed and improvised spirit of drawing a medium that encourages the artist to invent, to play and to see. This exhibition presents drawing as an inventory of ideas and forms that are made unselfconsciously; somehow intimate, subtle, mutable and contingent. The curators are taking the positions that drawing can be the start of the arduous process of discovery
