Drawings - October 09 until November 13, 2010
Ronald Noorman has chosen drawing as the primary vehicle for his imagination. What attracts him in drawing is the directness of the medium. Drawing reduces to a minimum the distance between idea, hand movement and the sign appearing on the paper, from the perspective of both time and space. The technical tools –pencil, crayon, water-colour, gouache- are a lot less inflexible than oil paint, copperplate, or stone and naturally lend themselves more easily to experimentation: failures or rejects are referred to the bin. However, drawing knows no mercy; wiping or covering up of errors is virtually impossible. Moreover, it seems as if the viewer is able to look over the shoulder of the artists; that is how direct the contact is. The slightest hesitation, mistake or change of mind is immediately observed.
