Taking a line for a walk…

 

‘Art does not reproduce what we see; rather, it makes us see.’

Paul Klee (1879-1940)

‘There is no way to make a drawing – there is only drawing. Anything you can project as expressive in terms of drawing – ideas, metaphors, emotions, language structures – results from the act of doing. Drawing is a verb.’

Richard Serra (b. 1939)
