Currently on exhibition at the Gallery Of Modern Art in Brisbane is Matisse: Drawing Life, the most comprehensive presentation of Henri Matisse’s original drawings & prints ever mounted. Also to complement the exhibition there is ‘The Drawing Room’, an interactive large-scale drawing studio for visitors, inspired by Matisse and his working environments.
If you live locally and haven’t already been I highly recommend it, though be sure to choose a day when they have the life models to draw from to complete the experience.
My line drawing is the purest and most direct translation of my emotion. The simplification of the medium allows that. At the same time, these drawings are more complete than they may appear to some people who confuse them with a sketch.
