With its invention in China in the II century, paper has served as the support for an extraordinarily diverse body of work. Encompassing a diverse range of media — from drawing and painting to collage and beyond — works on paper can offer a glimpse into an artist’s creative process. For many, the freedom and immediacy afforded by working on paper became instrumental to their practices, spawning new techniques, aesthetics, subjects and methods. Far from being confined to studies and experiments, works on paper represent important modes of art-making in their own right.
