New Release (Fiction)
Easily the most exciting overview of contemporary drawing currently available.
“Vitamin D2” is the long awaited follow up to the best selling “Vitamin D” and not a single page disappoints. “Vitamin D2” presents the work of 115 artists who are currently emerging on the world stage, have become established since the first volume was published in 2005, or who have made a significant contribution to the medium of drawing in this time. Participating artists are sourced from over 40 different countries with Australia represented by local artists Maria Kontis and Richard Lewer.
Illustrated with over 500 images, “Vitamin D2” features practices ranging from highly accomplished figurative drawing to abstract explorations of the medium, in materials including pencil, charcoal, crayon, pastel, ink, watercolour and digital drawing. Traditional techniques are matched by new approaches, often pushing the boundaries of drawing into collage, towards painting, sculpture, architecture, illustration, animation, performance and beyond. A broad range of genres, styles and subjects is evident in diverse forms, from drawings that fit in the palm of the hand to works that cover an entire courtyard.
“Vitamin D2” reflects the vitality and energy of current drawing, and provides an indispensable and exciting overview of drawing today. 5 Stars.
