PAPYROPHILIA is a celebration of an artist’s treatment of one of the most exciting and enduring mediums, work on paper. Often considered as secondary or preparatory, this exhibition aims to highlight how working on paper can be a vital and immediate process that is free from constraints often endured by working in other mediums.
Combining artists who specialise or work predominantly with paper such as Reece Jones or James Unsworth to multi-disciplinary artists like Luke Jackson or Miranda Whall to those who are known only for working in other mediums such as Mark McGowan, Dominic Shepherd or John Stark, PAPYROPHILIA will illuminate these various approaches and invite the audience to gain an insightful view of the artists’ working practice.
In its totality PAPYROPHILIA will provide an overview of pencil, charcoal, ink, watercolour, etching and collage on paper by an essential selection of rising and established artists.
