Drawings on Hands is a carefully compiled collection of images of the hand. This veritable visual encyclopaedia collects 132 images of our most dexterous body part, gathered from across the annals of art history -from a meticulous study by Albrecht Dürer to the contemporary dreamlike depiction by Moriceau & Mrzyk, from instructional handshake diagrams to warnings for pickpockets. The hand as a stamp, a model, a stencil, a map, a calendar, a medical index, a relic, an indicator, a saint and a magician.
Drawings On Hands is number four in an ongoing series of books on drawings, published by J&L Books (US). Previously released: Drawings on Heads, Drawings on Geology and Drawings on Writing. http://www.drawingsonhands.org
Twenty artists have made work available for this exhibition.
