A line is so much more than just the distance between two dots. It is the fundamental building-block that every artist employs – even if, like Jackson Pollock, they are simply dribbling paint onto a horizontal canvas. It is a signifier of innate talent: the critics speak of "bold" lines and "subtle" lines. One would be hard-pressed to think of any work of art that did not involve lines – even Malevich's notorious 1915 "Black Square" wouldn't have worked without an outline to define it.

The Line Issue

Putting their art on the line

For all that it is fundamental to any visual art-form, be it illustration, animation, fashion or furniture design, sculpture or installation, architecture… anything in fact that is made to be looked at, there are some creatives who specialise in lines, who use them them as the principal springboard for their work.

The boldness, or delicacy, with which lines are drawn can be indicative of innate artistic talent, because the line is the basic building-block of all art. Even those artists who do not first sketch out what they want to paint but straightaway apply paint to canvas usually "outline" the overall appearance of their imagined concept before filling in the detail.

Creative Country: Iceland

Volcanic passion unleashed in cold climate

Ever since the first settlers arrived, this remote and inhospitable scenery has inspired Icelanders to represent it in art. The country's small population has led to intense competition as well as creating a communal spirit and a hands-on approach that does not allow the luxury of much specialisation. Here we present the work – and words – of 13 "Young Vikings" in the hope that they will give you a flavour of what's hot and happening in this cold climate.
