Brett Littman (Exective Director of The Drawing Center NY)
The Japanese artist, Hiraku Suzuki’s work in drawing focuses on the medium’s ability to fluidly move between image and language. Since my early days as a philosopher (with a focus on language) and a poet in college, I have also been interested in the relationships between the visual and the textual. Hiraku works in many ways including: works on paper, wall drawings, video and performance. For me personally, it is his large-scale installations and video projections that hold the most promise – I like the idea of thinking about the way drawing, language and symbols can affect the body.
