The sixth annual Moleskine Project, a group exhibition curated by Sydney-based artist Rodrigo Luff and gallery owner Ken Harman, is kicking off at Spoke Art in SF. This dynamic format-driven group exhibition spans across the globe, artistic professions, styles, and media to delve into the intimacy of the artists’ sketchbook.
With over 50 contributing artists, the latest installment of the exhibition continues to evolve and expand on each artists’ individual practice and the commonalities within the ubiquitous sketchbook. Allowing viewers and artists alike to peek into the intimate realm of the art making process, each piece plays with the balance between refined finality and lingering thoughts yet to be completed.
Co-curator Rodrigo Luff describes the show as “a tribute to how artists have developed and grown by using sketchbooks to dive deeper into the personal realms that fuel their artwork, exploring new ideas, concepts and even experimenting with different media and styles. An energetic visual dialogue of imagery flows from frame to frame, forming a collective sketchbook that allows us to appreciate the radically individual approach taken by each artist.”
