OUTSIDE THE LINES: the drawing in contemporary art

Drawings render inspiration into the visible. They are are the basis of visual thinking. Drawings can be blueprints or designs for larger objects. They can be the seed of an idea that, through deeper exploration, will grow into something completely different.  Some drawings are both a beginning and an end unto themselves.

The belligerent, draftsmanship of Dennis Oppenheim’s studies and Tony DeLap’s drawings are often more intimate and accessible than the monumental sculptures or rigorous paintings which are birthed from the sketches. They offer an insight into the minds of these influential and historically important artists.  The meticulous and seemingly simple steel shapes of post-minimalist Kenneth Capps are as much a final work of art as a gateway into the objects that they anticipate. From glued pieces of the cut stripes in David Allan Peters drawings to Dennis Koch’s dense layers of colored pencil, whether labored over for months or scribbled in seconds, The drawings in OUTSIDE THE LINES reveal an artist’s most intimate thoughts and present them to the world.

OUTSIDE THE LINES is the first exhibition of Royale Projects’ 2010-2011 season.  It explores the drawing in contemporary art and exposes the artist’s broad definition of the word. OUTSIDE THE LINES features work by Kenneth Capps, Tony DeLap, Dennis Koch, Dennis Oppenheim, David Allan Peters and others.
