Press Release

Every two years the Drawing Biennial proves to be a highlight in Drawing Room’s programme – a critically acclaimed exhibition showcasing around 300 drawings from some of the most interesting artists working across the globe today. This year’s Biennial is a vibrant pulse-check of contemporary drawing in 2024, as well as a vital fundraiser that provides Drawing Room with funding for the next two years of activity, supporting artists and our community through championing drawing.


Small Measures is a suite of drawings that fall between architectural abstraction and music notations. They are studies of the incomplete line through the build up and erasure of graphite dust surfaces, and the application of ink and charcoal.

Dust is defined as matter which has altered or disintegrated. Fine particles suspended in the air through material change. The remains of something fragmented and absent, held in an incomplete state, not visible to our eyes. Dust is evoked as a material or state, connecting landscape to time.
