Art and Image | Drawing

Sometimes doing something leads to nothing. ( Francis Alÿs )

Art is its own form of knowledge. Drawing can be understood and used as an instrument of thought and action.Through drawing we can write, describe, communicate and recognize, comprehend the world, interpret and create meaning.  Eye, hand, pencil and paper have the potential to represent, combine and experiment with complex ideas and themes. The various senses of drawing and the examination of the present, society, culture and politics intertwine and thus have the potential to reframe and rearrange.
