Drawings - November 20 until December 18, 2010
The drawings of the American artist Linda Karshan, who works in London and the USA, capture the world, her world, using minimal signs. The curves of the early years have been compressed today into a few straight lines...
Linda Karshans drawings sound out an inner immensity (Gaston Bachelard) that encompasses space and time, in which emtiness indicates fullness and silence is a sound.
(Amine Haase, catalogue Drawing as Process, Museum Folkwang Essen)
Karshan’s work is held in famous private and public collection as of the British Museum, Staatliche Graphische Sammlung in Munich and Kramarsky Collection NY. Most recently The Courtauld London and the Folkwang Museum Essen have added to their collections Linda Karshan’s drawings and prints.
