" 'We should never be roused' by the essay...because it 'should lay us under a spell with its first word, and we should only wake, refreshed, with its last',...fixing us in a 'trance which is not sleep but an intensification of of life'."

Thomas Karshan, “What do they know?,” TLS, March 22, 2013, quoting Virginia Woolf, on the essay.

Linda Karshan does an impromptu performance in response to her exhibition, Equilibrio: Art Architecture and Sacred Geometry in conversation, at Abbazia Di San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice (August 26 - October 7, 2018). Here Linda walks the 'sacred geometry', effecting a drawing, in response to the magnificent show, curated by Dr. Carmelo Grassi and Rev.

"The Renaissance studiolo was a space devoted, in theory, to private reading and contemplation. But at the Italian Courts of the 15th Century, it had become a space of luxury, as much devoted to displaying the taste and culture of its occupant as to studious withdrawal.

My Studiolo View, conceived for San Giorgio Maggiore Abbey in Venice, reflects precisely my studious withdrawal. It shows the variety of my reading and research, as well as a selection of prints and drawings.

Assembling this material was second nature. It was ready to hand, readily spotted and selected to create an overview of me within my world of ideas, which enriches my studio practice on a daily basis." - Linda Karshan, May 2018

Linda Karshan Gallery Talk: April 19, 2017

The visualization of mathematics has taken many forms since the advent of printing. Animated by tensions between the abstract and the figural, the geometric and the gestural, these works from The Met collection show how artists from the 15th century to contemporary times have engaged in the creation and communication of mathematical knowledge through the use and production of images.

On view from January 31 - May 1, 2017 The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 690

Prints on view: 27/6 V from the series Footfalls and 23/6 III from the series Footfalls.
