Drawings + Prints

NOVEMBER 14, 2019 – JANUARY 11, 2020

BALTIMORE, MD – C. Grimaldis Gallery is pleased to present Drawings + Prints, a group exhibition that spans decades to display the beauty and power of works on paper.

This exhibition showcases prints from a number of artists best known for their expertise in sculpture. Richard Serra and Jene Highstein’s desire for minimalism and geometry translate into formulaic prints that emphasize the viewer’s perception of space. Madeleine Dietz and Bernar Venet show us how the cold smoothness of steel and the expressive motion of sculpture can be recreated on a two-dimensional plane.

Drawings + Prints also features prints from the Lascaux Series by Elaine de Kooning, an artist renowned for her participation in the Abstract Expressionist Movement. These prints came after the artist’s trip to the Paleolithic caves in Lascaux, France, when she began a series of works based on the cave paintings, in which outlines of animals such as deer, bison, and goats, are rendered against turbulent grounds of dense marks.

To celebrate the use of experimental materials in drawing, acclaimed South-African artist Diane Victor creates her images out of smoke. These portraits speak to the transience of life and the permeability of drawing. Baltimore-based artist Carol Miller Frost focuses on light and shadow with the velvety use of deep space within her shapes. Her abstractions, alongside the subtle figuration of Günther Frög’s prints show the beauty of darkness and form.

Drawings + Prints will be on view from November 14, 2019 through January, 11, 2020. An opening reception will take place on Thursday, November 14, 6 – 8pm. Hours for C. Grimaldis Gallery are Tuesday through Saturday, 10:30 am – 5:30 pm.
