"Linda Karshan creates work saturated with intuitive energy. Karshan’s performative method of working began in 1994. Her methodical, yet visceral, monochromatic drawings are an example of Karshan listening to her ‘inner choreography’. Like each artist in this exhibition, Karshan’s configuration of intersecting lines, grids and repetitive marks, take inspiration from Plato’s theory that our universe is one of numerical order. Every mark is a direct reaction to her rhythmic breathing and counter-clockwise turning of the paper, resulting in abstract footage of the ritualistic way her body experiences time and space."

Signs of Men

Redfern Gallery, London

January 9 - 29, 2015

A exhibition of drawings from the last two decades, and  a new edition of prints by Karshan, Footfalls: a series of twenty-seven etchings in an edition of ten copies.

According to Vitruvius, and to Cicero, too, the fourth-century Greek philosopher, Aristippus, found himself ‘shipwrecked and cast on the Rhodian shore.' He despaired.

He then happened to notice some geometrical figures scratched  into the sand–triangles, perhaps, or circles, or lines suspended from points. He said to his companions, ‘We can hope for the best, for I see signs of men.' (Marcus Vitruvius Pollio. De Architectura. Book VI circa 15 BC)
