NEW YORK – onetwentyeight is excited to present HYPERCALLIGRAPHIC, a new group exhibition exploring the parameters of the calligraphic mark within the context of contemporary art & culture. The calligraphic mark exists uniquely as a structural component in many different forms of writing & pictorial representation, threading its way through traditional Chinese landscape painting and the sensuous line drawings of the Italian Renaissance, into Japanese Haiku and Zen Painting, into Graffiti art, Fashion, Abstract Expressionism, and even now serves as the basis of much Contemporary Abstraction. Calligraphy, and by extension- the calligraphic mark, have elaborate histories in both the East and West, joined by various concepts of the expressive potential of lines drawn, written or painted by the human hand upon any myriad of receptive surfaces. This exhibition presents an array of current artists whose awareness and background encompass several of these former influences, who are driving calligraphy into new directions.
onetwentyeight is pleased to present the work of these participating artists for this exhibition.
