"Works on Paper brings together artists from the Royal College of Art’s MA Painting programme, in dialogue through their wildly diverse practices. It offers distinct glimpses into each artist’s attitude, revealing unique detours or details behind or beyond the craft of more traditional painting.
This exhibition was created outside of the normal parameters of curation: direct selection of works by the artists themselves makes the show a celebration of artistic freedom, with the only rule that the work should be on paper and of a smaller scale. The artists explore form and material with reckless abandon. Black ink lines or charcoal touches trace across starched paper, suggesting bodily contours or organic forms emerging.
The intimacy of works on paper, through the smaller scale and portability of the object, opens a gate into the inner world of the artist, while creating space to play with the dream forming at our fingertips."
