I’m afraid you are too late to visit the show Drawing Front (and back) at Quartair, which is a pity as it was quite an interesting one. Twenty-five artists gave a small personal artistic biography in drawings, ideally showing a children’s drawing, one from their teens and some more from a later age.

The results were, apart from endearing, sometimes stunning. Although the show is over I thought it was interesting enough to show some pictures for the record.

Taking presentable pictures of everything was not possible and I’m sorry to say I have no footage of the works by Justin Bennett and Rens Krikhaar because of much too irritating reflections in the glass (Sorry gentlemen, but it was a pleasure seeing them anyway!). The numbers behind the names under the pictures refer to the age of the artists at the moment of drawing.

The Graphic Studio invites amateurs to make their own self portraits in linocut and pose with the result for a digital picture. Both results are shown in and on a photo booth.

Maybe it would be a suggestion for the workshop also to visit an asylum seekers centre in The Hague?

It may give some relief and fun as it does to the Hague amateurs and artists.
