Works on Paper, Sylvia Plimack Mangold and Robert Mangold

What's different about painting on paper? For those of us that work on both paper and canvas the difference is enormous, but I'm not convinced that translates to the viewer. Sylvia Plimack Mangold and Robert Mangold had an exhibit of works on paper at Annemarie Verna Gallery last spring. In an interview in 2009 Robert Mangold explained his approach to works on paper

Drawing for me is a process. It’s true that my paintings in a lot of ways are as much drawing as they are paintings. I think my involvement from the beginning has been very linear in terms of how I work, and I’ve never been involved in paint the way a lot of painters are. It’s been a way of coloring a surface or a step, but drawing is the starting point.  more
