Each week we present a collection of artwork from a variety of artists curated around a common theme. This week the theme is Line.  As in the mark that continues, revelling in it's journey across a canvas or page. I chose this theme while wondering the following: Do artists who work with an emphasis on line might possibly experience artmaking in a very particular way due to their vision of continuity and the path a line might travel in their work. Are they at once the maker of the line and also subject to it's hypnotic directive? Here are some carefully selected artworks curated around the idea of line.
