Tayo HeuserApril 15 - May 28, 2011
Tayo Heuser’s biomorphic movement, color, form and shape alter our ideas about what constitutes a drawing. Large and small scale shaped handmade and tinted abaca paper is formed over the artist’s molds and then drawn on with rare natural inks. New two-dimensional drawings move towards the celestial with circles and piercing, map-like lines directing our eye to follow along. Weightlessness and the sensation of floating are central to Tayo Heuser’s new drawings as is her acute sense of color. In these new works, sensation abounds in a quiet and peaceful manner.
