The exhibition includes drawings from the most significant contemporary artists in China.

Esson’s work was subsequently was used in a Chinese drawing reference book ‘Configuration and Intention’ by A. Yu, published by Liaoning Art Publishing, Shenyang 2005. The Australian contributors were selected by Dr Peter Hill, artist and former editor of Alba magazine. The exhibition was the inaugural exhibition at the new Xian Academy of Fine Art Gallery, and was organized in relation to the International Drawing Art Conference at which I presented a paper - ‘The Private and Public Face of Drawing’ October 24/25. As an extension of this cross-cultural drawing event, Esson I worked with Ian Howard, (Australian artist), Wang Xu, (Chinese artist), and Xin Jun Qin (Chinese Peoples Liberation Army Officer and artist) on an artist’s army drawing project over three days, which was included in the International Contemporary Art exhibition as ‘From The Soil They Come’.
