The Idiosyncratic Pencil is an experimental group exhibition inspired by both the Fluxus art movement of the 1960s and William Henry Fox Talbot’s groundbreaking 1844 The Pencil of Nature, each a radical break from past methods of art production.

As today’s instruments of meaningful articulation and expression are undergoing an equally dramatic reassessment, The Idiosyncratic Pencil will explore the early 21st Century artist’s response to the rapidly evolving nature of image making in this breakneck, feverish, media-saturated, and over-stimulated epoch.

Over fifty national and international artists will participate with original works contained within (or a product of) a digital image format. The images, of greatly varied disposition (representation, abstraction, concept, line, photograph, text, repurpose) are either improvisational variants of their ongoing body of work, products of their individual processes, or a visual membrane of sorts between their artistic practice and the world around us.

The exhibition works were emailed to Harper Gallery, where they were finely printed on 11 by 8.5 inch photo quality archival inkjet paper.
