The Drawing issue features:


Robert Longo
Waves crashing, bombs exploding, flowers blooming—Border Crossings looks at the art of the noted American artist whose desire to capture things at “the moment of their fulfillment,” forever suspends them at the height of their beauty and power.

Alison Norlen
For Norlen, creating artwork is addictive. In an interview with Border Crossings, the Saskatchewan-based artist discusses her compulsion to make art “a multi-sensory, visceral experience,” creating narratives that are “layered with weirdness.”

Ed Pien
The Canadian artist talks with Border Crossings about his distinct drawing style and technique, his laborious, intricate and otherworldly cut-piece installations and how his art isn’t about answering questions but posing them, whether they be “beautiful or ugly and grotesque.”
