Tannaz Oroumchi's drawings take on a geometric appearance as they form vast birds-eye-view perspectives of different cities. Oroumchi’s rigorous attention to detail and monochrome palettes form drawings that echo old-fashioned maps.
Conceptual drawings focus on the idea, meaning or concept behind the work, whilst its formal appearance remains secondary. Whether probing at philosophical thinking, or stirring a sense of deep self-contemplation, conceptual art is free from formal convention and restriction.
Conceptual drawing emerged during the 1960s, when artists shifted their attention from the visual nature of art, to the idea that fuelled the artwork. Concerned with breaking the limits of creation, conceptual drawings arose as a valid medium, whilst also being used to plan other conceptual pieces. Artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Matt Mullican and Adrian Piper created conceptual drawings to question the purpose of art, and draw attention to the act of artistic practice.
