The Nash Gallery was displaying drawings, which were mostly black and white, but there were a few that were vibrantly colored. The pieces ranged from just newly created to a few centuries old. The piece of art that I chose to write about was from George Morrison, untitled 1977, lithograph on paper. It consisted of a tangle of lines drawn throughout the paper seemingly at random. However, at about three quarters up the piece there was an almost solid line running straight from side to side. Your eyes were instantly drawn from the randomness of the drawing, straight to this line. It made me look closer to try and find some hidden pattern or shape. Although I could not find any, I liked the piece a lot because I felt like I had to take a closer look to take it all in.
