For the majority of artists a drawing is not a finished item – it’s a visual note, a study, or a working rough leading towards something more complete that might be executed in another medium: a painting, a sculpture, a film, performance art, architecture. Nevertheless, as with those in this forthcoming exhibition, which includes A4 mounted works by 200 British and international artists of different generations, many of them well-known, such as Nidhal Chamekh, Michael Craig-Martin, Richard Deacon, Antony Gormley, Mona Hatoum, Chantal Joffe, Anish Kapoor, William Kentridge, Michael Landy, Humphrey Ocean, Ruby Onyinyechi Amanze, Julian Opie, Cornelia Parker, Grayson Perry, Gavin Turk, Julie Verhoeven, Yu Chen Wang, Mark Wallinger, Alison Wilding, and other less famous names, it can equally be an end in itself.
