Drawing Lesson / La lliçó de dibuix.


Drawing at its best is not
what your eyes see but what our
mind understands.

El Dibuix és, en el millors dels casos, no el que el teu
ull veu sinó el que la teva ment comprèn.

Millard Sheets

Drawing is commonly considered the oldest artform we humans can identify with. But considering it from a distance the act of drawing is maybe the simplest expression we know. We just need a pen and a piece of paper. And we can start doodling on notebooks next to the telephone, on supermarket tickets, even on napkins.

But of course there is always the paper itself first. It is the main ingredient for the artistic process, the beholder and the support. It's where everything bing. But quite some material, machines and methods are needed to make a single sheet os paper. And of course also the talent and the labour of man.

The place hosting this exhibition, the Capellades Paper Mill Museum pays a tribute to this tradition.

This exhibition: The Drawing Lesson/ La Lliçó de dibuix is a selection of drawing artworks from 30 artist curated by the artist and curator Erich Weiss.
