NameThe Poetry of Paper
DescriptionThis exhibition of drawings explores the concept of negative space—the unoccupied ground around drawn elements. It elucidates how artists deliberately left areas of paper blank to create the illusion of light and form, using absence to evoke a sense of presence. For select drawings, the curator chose to write haiku—an unrhymed, three–lined poem—to describe how empty passages contain meaning. Employing only seventeen syllables in three lines to conjure an image or idea, these haikus complement the artful restraint of the works on view. The exhibition displays especially some works from G. Klimt.
