This article provides a survey of recent projects in the acrylic medium, detailing some of the operative conceptual machinery and genesis of the ideas, with brief reflections on the implications of materials, process and aesthetic choices. It attempts to extract speculative philosophical consequences for approaches to drawing and the possibilities of thinking its act through the concepts of gesture and manipulative abduction as they appear in the work of Gilles Châtelet and Lorenzo Magnani, respectively. Beyond this, the article sets up a potential task for thinking art in relation to alienation and estrangement as ineradicable aspects of its procedures, and considers them as liberating rather than constricting mechanisms.
