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.
