Contemporary drawing explores material and mental space and conducts a dialogue with the recipient. It creates a graphic register using various visual means related to emotions and thinking. The original language of drawing requires constant uncertainty and verification, while at the same time it needs clearly defined intentions. There are no two identical drawings, this is a unique value in the age of multiplication.
