Good drawing show in Culver City

At Kinkead Contemporary in Culver City, "Drawn" examines the role of drawing within an artist's larger practice. The exhibition features four artists whose works on paper provide a deeper understanding of both their discipline and their process, while inviting the viewer deeper into the thinking behind their work in general. Michael Jones McKean, a sculptor, produces collages mirroring the assemblage of his larger works. Bettina Sellmann is the most traditional of the group; many of her drawings directly relate to her watercolor on canvas paintings. Jered Sprecher's gouache works on paper serve as an experimental proving ground for his paintings. And Kevin Zucker produces smaller drawing versions of his larger conceptual works on canvas. The drawings in "Drawn" demonstrate different approaches, while highlighting each artist's primary practice of art making.

"Drawn," Kinkead Contemporary, Culver City, CA. Through March 28.
