As an artist who works primarily with paper, it would be remiss of me not to take a trip to view the 2013 'Art on Paper' award at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery. Its only my second trip to the gallery and I had forgotten what a gem of a space it is with its beautiful gardens and buzzing weekend throng of people.
The variety of works was inspiring with some recognisable artists work on display. Among my favourites were a collection of modest charcoal drawings by Peter Sharp, a painterly oil on paper work by John R Walker and a series of painted Japanese labels by Sarah Goffman.
By far, the piece I returned to over & over again was by Ken & Julia Yonetani titled 'Senkaku (se no Kaku) : The tides of History'. (see pictured-detail). This vast pencil on paper work is a testament in perseverance and a meditation on the drawn line.
