Line – An Ambiguous Journey explores the practice of drawing on and beyond the paper source via the work of four practitioners currently working in the North of Ireland.  The works presented in this group show bring together a diverse range of explorations into the drawing process including traditional and non-traditional media.

Whilst utilizing drawing as a fundamental tool for thinking across disciplines, this exhibition incorporating the exploration of mark-making among creative processes as a visual journey on conceptual drawing modes.  Inaugural to this process the artists also question the use of drawing as an experimental approach and attitude, distinct from drawing as an outcome or discipline.
