Jackson Pollock , Number 23, Enamel on gesso on paper, 575 x 784 mm
The Scribblescapes exhibition explores the world of process-driven art. Think Jackson Pollock. Some artists prioritize the process of art-making more than the end-result. This exhibition features artists who are concerned with the process and have obsessive ways of art-making. Some only scribble with markers. Some only paint with dots. Some only work in patterns.
