This series of recent drawings, mostly completed within the last year, show Yuxweluptun's continuing engagement with the medium. His drawings are labour intensive, showing the extreme, rich detail achieved with a crosshatch technique. They provide an interesting counterpoint to his larger paintings and often serve as studies for later works, where the images are developed and refined. Here we see Yuxweluptun at his loosest, most playful, and most experimental. The subject matter in these drawings runs the gamut of Yuxweluptun's interests: satirical and biting but also spiritual and aesthetic.
Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun is one of Canada's best known contemporary artists. His work over the last 20 years has covered many mediums and he remains an enduring figure on our national artistic landscape.
