Artworks done on paper tend to stress the skill and presence of the artist’s hand.
Their scale is intimate and subtle. In a very real sense they bring us close to the creative act as a direct transmission from brain to hand. The exhibition centers on this process.
The participating artists come from Latin America, Europe, Asia, and the United States, and work in different mediums such as dry point, lithograph, woodcut, pen and ink, watercolor, gouache, silkscreen, and mixed media.
The exhibition was curated by the late British art critic and curator Kevin Power and Spanish curator Mónica Carballas,
The traveling exhibition’s Philippine run will be curated by Carballas and feature the works of Ignacio Alcántara (Dominican Republic); Francisco de Assis Almeida (Brasil); Javier Arce (Spain); José Bedia (Cuba); Chema Cobo (Spain); Abraham Cruzvillegas (Mexico); Marcel Dzama (Canada); Curro González (Spain); Mondongo (Argentine); Lauren Kelley (U.S.A.); Abraham Lacalle (Spain); Robert Langenegger (Philippines); Miki Leal (Spain); Manuel Ocampo (Philippines); Carlo Ricafort (Philippines); Carlos Rivera (Puerto Rico); Lazaro Saavedra (Cuba); Laurie Steelink (U.S.A.); Taller Popular de Serigrafia (Argentine); David Griggs (Australia).(PNA)
