Haydens is pleased to present Characters, a group exhibition featuring a selection of Australia’s leading conceptual drawing practitioners.

Traversing diverse themes such as automatism, connectivity, performativity, and translation, Characters visualises ideas as material. Taking form in a variety of mediums, these drawn works are characteristic of fixed points in time. What we see is a trace, or an artifact of a specific culmination of events, and in some cases the act of interpreting this residue is the focus of interest. What is seen is the result of a sustained engagement in drawing as a method of communicating beyond language.

Sometimes it is the outcome of an event, a symbol of linguistic expression, or the instruction for noise echoing through space. At other times it is the openness and unlimited possibilities of consciousness reflected through nature, or the creation of a system of order in which to understand the chaos. It is also the culmination of shared experiences, mediated through artificial conglomerations, created from the gathered thoughts of an endless stream of data. Here, drawing’s potential is limitless.
