‘New Shoots’ is an exhibition of the sketchbooks and drawings of UK artist Paul Ryan. Looking at ‘note taking’ as the beginnings of a creative process, the exhibition builds a final work with these seedling concepts. Several large finished drawings also on display are hand drawn versions of some notebook pages, re-evaluating the quick, spontaneous and ‘non dogmatic’ nature of the sketch or drawing. This compares with the relative dogma of a finished painting or sculpture.

A greenhouse metaphor is carried further: playing on the aesthetics of a gardener’s potting shed, where ideas are cultivated in different environments (sand, soils, rubble). These conceptual ‘New Shoots’ ponder the artist’s response to Serbia made during and since a visit in 2004, as well as engaging in the debates within current theoretical approaches to drawing which have developed in the UK over the last decade.
