Drawing is experiencing a remarkable contemporary resurgence, with a revival of interest among collectors and curators, as well as among young artists who have discovered exciting new possibilities for the medium.
A showcase of new directions in drawing, Drawing Now includes forty works by artists from around the world whose work defines this continually changing medium, including Silvia Bächli, Michaël Borremans, Toba Khedoori, Paul Noble, Robin Rhode, David Shrigley, Sandra Vásquez de la Horra, and Jorinde Voigt, among others. Works in the book range from small to very large in scale, from abstract to realistic and highly representational, and from rapidly made sketches to elaborate projects planned to the last detail. Some of the drawings play with dimension or space, like a drawing whose lines continues to the wall behind it. Others have been transformed into video animation, proving that the medium is truly no longer limited to ink, pencil, and paper.
With Drawing Now, Martin Germann and Elsy Lahner present a selective and wide-ranging survey of twenty-first-century artists working within the medium of drawing with nearly two hundred full-color illustrations.
