'It is the bareness of drawing that I like. The act of drawing is whatlocates, suggests. discovers' (Phillip Guston)

Plan B features eighteen artists chosen by guest curator Max Mason. Using a rangeof materials that stretches from pencil to collage and computer, only one ortwo of these artists treat drawing as an end in itself. For the rest, workingin a variety of media from painting and sculpture to film and animation, it'sa jotting, an aide-memoire, a preparatory sketch or blueprint, an intermediatepart of their process somewhare along the line between thought and realisation.

What every one of them is doing nevertheless, is starting from observation, memoryor imagination, and ending with drawing; drawing is present here as another wayof seeing and thinking. Discovering, as Guston says.
