In 2020, Espace A VENDRE returns with 4 artists to the Carreau du Temple as a regular Drawing Now exhibitor (10 participations in 13 editions). Quentin Spohn, the youngest artist in our selection, will be in focus for his first participation. His technique, a charcoal stone used on raw canvas (which looks very alike the Mezzotint in engraving), feeds a lush and deeply satirical vision of contemporary society. Karine Rougier, an essential Drawing Now artist, will also be back with Espace A VENDRE. Taking a break from her recent production of paintings on wood, she will propose new original drawings created especially for the show. Thierry Lagalla will continue to push the medium to its limits between gesture and thought, while Emmanuel Régent will present a new series of sunsets in torn watercolours, as an impossible capture of an essential subject in the medium.
