This show represents the core of what, to me, Drawing means: mark making as reaction to the animal world. Remember Lascaux. Remember Altamira. Think Post-primal modernism; figuration meets abstraction.  This exhibit of unframed work, namely media clipped to the gallery wall, is unassuming and free; torn from the sketchbooks of amazingly talented artists, this show is a return to the core ideals of the Drawing Gallery: great, original, proto-work presented as complete because of its creative novelty.
