The Poetry of Paper at Getty Museum, Los Angeles

July 23 – October 20, 2013 
at the Getty Museum, Los Angeles
This exhibition of drawings explores the concept of negative space—the unoccupied ground around drawn elements. It elucidates how artists deliberately left areas of paper blank to create the illusion of light and form, using absence to evoke a sense of presence.
For select drawings, the curator chose to write haiku—an unrhymed, three–lined poem—to describe how empty passages contain meaning. Employing only seventeen syllables in three lines to conjure an image or idea, these haikus complement the artful restraint of the works on view.
