Portraiture Now: Drawing on the Edge

Portraiture Now: Drawing on the Edge

November 16, 2012 – August 18, 2013

Museum: Portrait Gallery

Location: 1st Floor, Northeast

Artists Mequitta Ahuja, Mary Borgman, Adam Chapman, Ben Durham, Till Freiwald, and Rob Matthews expand the narrow boundaries that once defined drawing and portraiture. Probing the intersection between drawing and photography, painting, video, textual writing, and computer technology, all six artists show a commitment to direct, immediate, highly personal mark-making. Each of them employs a painstaking technique; their meticulous, repetitive actions result in a contemplative, almost meditative, engagement with process that adds a psychological depth to their work.
