Despite being perceived as a humble medium, paper has been at the fore of diverse art forms—from illustrations, calligraphy, paintings, all the way to literature and print, and even resonating into its new media contemporaries. Paper has always been a staple, a foundation of art making. Artworks on paper may have its share of vulnerability and unpredictability, but they likewise present a vision of a beginning and a culmination of an idea on a highly versatile material.
Such, Galerie Stephanie continues to highlight the ingenious possibilities of paper in the third edition of “Position Paper”. This medium similarly reflects the challenges of the present time, with artists resorting to paper being more commercially accessible. With more than 50 participating artists, this year’s Position Paper takes on a bolder reflection of the medium, mirroring the society’s present endeavours and how artists respond with resourcefulness and innovation.
