  Drawings
June 18 - August 7, 2009
 

The exhibition includes a wide range of drawings, both abstract and representational, employing a variety of techniques and media. Among these are Davide Cantoni's scenes of war derived from newspaper photographs, created by burning and singeing vellum and Jim Dingilian's views of parking lots and ravines made from candle smoke erased from the inside of liquor bottles. Ruth Marten transforms zoological prints into humorous and surreal images with the addition of her own enhancements in ink. Both Alexander Gorlizki and Julie Evans reference the Indian Miniaturist tradition in their exquisite and detailed works on paper, while Carl Goldhagen, working in Sumi ink, and Daniel Hill, squeezing acrylic polymer emulsion from a bottle, create op-like linear abstractions. Maureen McQuillan's luminous abstract photograms are made by exposing light through scores of layered drawings on transparent sheets while Karen Margolis uses watercolor, gouache and graphite in her obsessively patterned molecular-like drawings. Eric Heist creates highly detailed images of consumerist desire in graphite while Jeff Morris uses the same medium in reductive but dense geometric abstractions. Fantastical imagery is rendered by Ati Maier in colored inks in an explosively cosmic composition and in a futuristic landscape-like watercolor and gouache by Darina Karpov. Ruth Waldman explores floral motifs in colored pencil in her meticulous, Dr. Seuss-like environments while Jolynn Krystosek creates large-scale, beautifully detailed scrolls of botanical imagery by cutting paper. Miriam Brumer creates richly colored mythic scenes of dense arrangements of natural forms in acrylic and marker on vellum. James Nelson's playful topiary of abstracted coils of hair are executed in loose swirls of charcoal, while Aric Obrosey achieves a density and richness in his tonalities using finely drawn charcoal to render pattern-filled strands of interwoven lace. Julie Allen draws with embroidery thread to create an intimate still life of sushi; and Will Yackulic combines watercolor, letter press and typewriter ink in his mysterious and detailed image of floating spheres. Hunter Stabler's elaborate and Byzantine drawings use a reverse process of filling voids with India ink, leaving behind intertwining linear strands, while Ken Weaver exploits oil pastel to achieve a decadent and rich vision of a sparkling and luminous chandelier.
