About

Ground Floor Gallery is pleased to present, “Barbara Marks: The Drawings,” the second in a two-part exhibition investigating the artist’s recent oeuvre: an extensive body of work created close to home—coastal Connecticut and New York City—and farther afield at artist residencies in Wyoming, Los Angeles, Georgia, Florida, and southern France. Rooted primarily in observation—with a nod to memory and make-believe—Marks’ drawings are far from sketches; they are expressive and complete works of art in and of themselves. Each drawing serves as an entry in the artist’s visual diary-as-archive. The 10-foot-long accordion albums compel the viewer to gradually examine each narrative as it unfolds, revealing select details of a particular time and place. Intimate in perspective and, often times, in subject matter, these smaller-scale, ink-on-paper compositions demonstrate how Marks coerces a simple black line into a vocabulary of exceptionally voluminous and lifelike forms.
