Centre For Recent Drawing
7 November – 7 December 2013
Private view: Thursday 7 November 6-8pm
Centre for Recent Drawing is pleased to present a solo exhibition of large-scale graphite powder drawings by the British artist George Charman. The common thread that runs through Charman’s drawing practice is a curiosity in the mechanics of illusionary space. This most recent series of drawings takes as its starting point, the axonometric grid. Through a process of division and sub-division, Charman dismantles the axonometric grid to reveal a series of equally diminishing equilateral triangles. These triangles are employed in a subversive manner by Charman to shift the grid away from its original intention – understanding three-dimensional space through a linear form of projection – and instead layers and overlaps the grid to reveal dimensional arrangements constructed from perceived tonal shifts brought about by the relative proximity of one shape to another.
