ONLY WORKS ON PAPER
Work on paper includes manuscripts, drawings, collages, and paintings on paper. With its invention in China in the 2nd century, paper has served as the support for an extraordinarily diverse body of work. Many artists, from Leonardo da Vinci to Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso and Sol Lewitt have been experimenting the use of paper. Either as a privileged surface for preliminary studies or as an alternative medium for experimenting techniques, paper has often represented a more intimate expression of an artist’s practice.
In this historical moment, artists had the need to narrate their artistic will in a more intimate and collected expression. Nuova Galleria Morone - Works on Paper was born from the necessity to move closer the audience to a more profound and confidential narration of art. In the era of digital platforms, where everything seems detached and long-distance, the recovery of traditional artistic tools might bring back the warmth and the humanity that seem lost. By releasing traditions through a more intimate way of expression, pencil and paper can communicate even to the youngest rank of collectors.
