Taking its starting point from the small painting, Miniature of the Artist’s Hand by William Mulready in the Drogheda Municipal Art collection, Some thing as a line is a group exhibition that looks at the spatial and temporal properties of line. The show considers the ability of line to move from a representational mark to an autonomous entity in space and time. Mulready’s painting depicts a hand in the act of drawing from a sculpture onto an ivory surface, suggesting a movement for line between a range of media and disciplines, from sculpture to drawing and painting. Each of the ten invited artists use line in a variety of forms, across a range of media, where line is used to engage with a sense of materials, of space and of time.
