Hamiltonian Gallery announces the In Between, a solo exhibition by Hamiltonian Fellow Elena Volkova . In her newest series, Volkova explores drawing as a process of perception by pushing the conceptual boundaries of the medium off of the paper, and into the realm of space itself.
Elena Volkova presents a series of graphite drawings in which the subject matter is light. Seemingly fundamental, her drawings of folded paper and shadows on walls using a subtle value range are indicative of a systematic process-oriented approach to drawing, yet the result speaks more about the space around the actual drawn object. By bringing attention to the shadows and highlights that constitute an image, Volkova makes the viewer an active participant of the installation, where the act of looking, perceiving and comparing is emphasized.
