Wild at Hand a group exhibition of contemporary drawing, co-curated with Jenny Ames at HVW8 Gallery Berlin

As a celebration of work created on paper, the exhibition brings together a distinctive selection of drawings by fourteen artists, showcasing a variety of explorations in graphite, pastel, ink and mixed media practiced today. WILD AT HAND collates work diverse in medium, subject and mood. Each artist’s stylized ode to figuration captures their wild sense of imagination as represented on paper, presenting reflexive contemplations of identity and lived experience, alongside thoughtful muses on the world around.
