Mark Making: Perspectives On Drawing is a group exhibition in Gallery 3 at GoMA that explores drawing through the work of six young contemporary artists - Erica Eyres, France-Lise McGurn, Gregor Wright, Jonathan Owen, Lois Green and Ross Hamilton Frew - who place drawing as central to their practice.
Each of the featured artists approach drawing from very different perspectives, yet similar themes and processes – such as found images, manipulation of material, and transformation – create a common thread throughout their respective works. They also share a love of drawing and the ability to create a striking image.
The show extends across three rooms within GoMA’s Gallery 3 space, with each room pairing together two artists and exploring a shared theme that the artists use within their practice. Erica Eyres’ and Jonathan Owen’s practices and styles are very different, yet their drawings both take inspiration from found images. Meanwhile, France-Lise McGurn and Lois Green express their styles through the fundamentals of drawing: McGurn through line and Green through tone; and Gregor Wright and Ross Hamilton Frew show a fascination with material and process, letting experimentation dictate the final image.
