As a signifying practice in its own right, a drawing can be thought of as the record of its making, showing the interventions of chance, system and intention in the decision-making process of the artist. Amplifying the emphasis on process-oriented execution, the drawings in this exhibition depict motifs in transition: dissolving, connecting, fusing and forming.
Somewhere Along the Line combines two- and three-dimensional drawings by Nova Scotian artists David Dahms, Lucie Chan, Audrey Nicoll and Anne Macmillan with those of other Canadian artists Michelle Gay and Ed Pien (both Toronto, ON), Massimo Guerrera and Sophie Jodoin (both Montreal, QC) and Lucy Pullen (Victoria, BC).
It is one of the engaging qualities of drawing that is can remain unrestricted by the requirement to be “finished.”
