Monterrey, Mexico-based fine artist, Rene Almanza, who has shown extensively in San Francisco in recent years, will be showcasing 1001 ink drawings, all measuring 15 cm x 15 cm, at Gerrish Fine Art in London this June 19, 2012. Almanza is currently residing in London, preparing his enormous new body of work. Draws of Perception is one of Almanza's largest body of work examining drawing that he has ever built.

From Gerrish:

The exhibition will feature an epic 1001 drawings in ink, each measuring 15 x 15 cm. These will be hung side by side to form an immersive environment that will envelop the viewer and inundate the mind with the captivating images of Almanza's visual universe. The project represents an intense exploration into drawing. Almanza explains 'when you are drawing for a long time it is almost as if you are draining your code all over the surfaces you touch. In the case of this exhibition we have lots of little squares, lots of little windows, each of which present a series of new possibilities to follow. When you see all these possibilities we can understand immediately that drawing is infinite'.
