Description

Artless presents some of the most compelling images created by contemporary artists and illustrators using the simplest of tools, such as colour pencils, crayons, watercolour, scissors and glue. Work produced in this manner represents a growing and particularly resilient trend in the visual arts world. Through individual interviews with over 50 artists, Artless looks at how and why these particular artists find the intimate connection between the unassuming tools they use and the art thus created so enthralling. For creator and viewer alike there seems to be a particular kind of pleasure to be had in short-circuiting the sophisticated and often elusive strategies of contemporary art in favour of something disarmingly uncomplicated.
