At the beginning of the 19th century, western art began significant changes in terms of shapes and topics. The intense use of drawings and paper were introduced by Industrialisation, systematic research of history and natural sciences and the Arts. The artist, released from commissioned work and set free for individual artistic expression found paper to be a resource for endless experimentation. The most unespected techniques added to the traditional ones such as pencil, ink, charcoal, tempera and watercolour —used since then— and they started using paper as a technique in itself (collage, installation art).


Throughout the exhibition the represented artists —both native and adopted Menorcans— have used paper as the essential medium on which to express their ideas and feelings, using different techniques such as: drawing, gesture, colour, texture, graphic original work, collage, illustration, book or installation art.


Paper has some unique tactile and visual qualities. Its delicacy, lightness and fragility allow us to use it in a spontaneous, immediate way, picking up the artist’s first impulse.
