Magnolias: lnk on Paper
March 1 - March 28, 2007

Magnolias: lnk on Paper is an elegant mix of sumi ink drawings on a variety of handmade, dyed Japanese papers and hard ground etchings. Culling inspiration from the leaf-bare magnolia trees of winter, Horowitz ponders over every knobby junction, each gnarled bend and twisting branch; the dormant plants are bursting with the anticipation of blooming, but retain a quiet gracefulness all their own. Drawing with a quill pen and ink give her an intimacy with the sensitivity of each line, the velvety blackness of the sumi ink and the way it plays on the surface of the paper.
