4 x 4: Four Contemporary Artists, Four Approaches to Drawing
Talk by Jonah Groeneboer
Jonah Groeneboer’s talk is the first in a series of four talks in which emerging artists discuss the influence and relevancy of drawing within their multifacetedpractices. With diversity in both technique and approach, the artists in this series share an affinity for integrating drawing into a wide range of mediums – painting, sculpture, installation, mixed media – to critically investigate subjects of interest to them be it economics, politics, quantum physics, the human subconscious, or personal narrative. These artists’ unique forays into conceptual thinking and theoretical significance further broaden our conceptions of the field of drawing and highlight current trends and issues in contemporary art.

Through an economy of means, artist Jonah Groeneboer relies on an object based Conceptualism to create starkly graceful string installations and mystical geo-graphite powder drawings that aspire to the fourth dimension and seemingly defy space and time. Groeneboer received his MFA from New York University in 2007, and recently had his first solo exhibition at Bellwether Gallery in New York City. He is based in Brooklyn, New York.
