Scale is arguably one of the most significant defining factors of a work of art. It influences how both the artist and the viewer interact with the piece. Artwork that is roughly life-sized is an immersive experience that challenges the viewer to connect on a level of obligatory intimacy.
The artists in this show were asked to create a drawing that would be exactly 6 feet high by 2 feet wide. Each artist responded to the medium and size parameters in their own unique way. Some artists began with the specific size requirement, some began with a larger size that they cut down, and others began smaller. The resulting life-sized works collectively test what is typically conceived of as drawing.
