Zefrey Throwell with Serge Onnen and Joao Ribas

Serge Onnen (artist) and Joao Ribas (curator at The Drawing Center)

Drawings on Writing is the new dynamite book organized by Amsterdam based artist Serge Onnen.  Onnen investigates the fascinating breakdown of words as they become drawings and the fickle line as they approach the netherworld of meaning/meaninglessness.

The book includes samples of one of the most ecclectic mixes I have ever seen: Sherlock Holmes, the CIA, Napoleon Bonaparte, Gustave Flaubert, Earle Brown, the Shakers, Trisha Brown, Trenton Doyle Hancock, and even Roland Barthes makes a cameo.

Also, Joao Ribas, the curator of The Drawing Center, sits in and gives his witty and intelligent commentary about the book, life, and all the things in between.

A must listen!
