This is an insightful and engaging look at the work of three artists who are pushing the boundaries of drawing as an art form. Only in recent years has contemporary drawing become a recognized artistic discipline within itself. By looking at the work of Daniel Barrow, Alison Norlen and Ed Pien, this publication explores how contemporary drawing goes beyond the blank page to challenge the very material, spatial and thematic limitations with which it has been long associated. The work of these three artists in fact pushes the drawing-practice into a three-dimensional realm. The results evoke the beauty, despair and complexity of the human condition.
