Down the Line

Friday 28 August 2020 - Saturday 10 October 2020

Adam Knapper, 'Down the Line', pencil on paper, 2020

Art Access Victoria invites you to view artist Adam Knapper's Down the Line project. This online exhibition of drawings seeks to connect people during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Down the Line is a series of pencil drawings of interlocking ribbon forms. The entangled ribbons become a maze that can be followed and unravelled by the eye. For Adam, the project aims to “connect people in the current situation of self-isolation. The ribbon drawings represent the interconnectedness. Although we are physically distanced, there is an inherent connection we share through the experience of Covid-19 and the possible stresses on mental health.”

Adam Knapper is a Melbourne-based visual artist. He paints and draws as a way of unravelling and revealing the layers and complexities of the human experience. Adam has exhibited widely across Melbourne, with five solo and over 40 group exhibitions. He has received several awards, and his artworks are represented in public and private collections. Adam is a founding member of AAV’s Nimbus studio and accesses the AAV mentorship program. For more information about Adam’s work, please visit his website.

This project is supported by Yarra City Arts and Arts Access Victoria.
