Daisy Craddock: Four Decades reviewed on Hyperallergic

If a dollop of paint or a chunk of stone could talk, might it reveal just how much it enjoyed having been scraped across a canvas by a Joan Mitchell or picked at by the masterful, form-seeking hands of an Isamu Noguchi? If so, then there is something about Daisy Craddock’s drawings in oil pastel or oil stick on paper ...

Dazzling Shades of Grey: Virtuoso Drawings Explore a Largely Forgotten Art

Portrait of a Young Woman, c.1435 by Rogier van der Weyden, is so finely wrought, so lightly spun in soft silvery-greys, it appears at once solidly three-dimensional and barely there – an apparition whose presence nonetheless feels vivid. Many of later works feel vapid in comparison. An exception is Susan Schwalb’s Strata 407, 2005, an abstract drawing of gently undulating horizontal bands, whose variegated silvery tones appear to suggest subtle colours. Bright slivers of untouched white paper enhance the metallic gradations. In an exhibition that dazzles with the exquisite draughtsmanship of the Renaissance, Schwalb’s small work makes an impression.

David Morrison's "Bird Nests" series exhibiting at Carnegie Mellon University in

ELEMENTS - March19-June 30, 2015

This exhibition features drawings and watercolors of bird nests with a focus on the natural and man-made materials incorporated into these architectural structures. Photographs of forest understory will transport the viewer between the landscape and the ephemeral artifacts that signify the remains of a cycle of building, incubating, nesting and fledging. The featured artists are Sue Abramson, Wendy Brockman, David Morrison and Kate Nessler. The creators of these drawings and watercolors of bird nests and photographs of transitional landscapes are inspired by the relationship of the nest to time, place, music and architecture. Each artist has imbued the structures and the materials used and the locations and environments where built with their individual insight and perspective. Also included in the exhibition is a selection of birds, nests and eggs on loan from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.



"An Artist’s Supremely Material Paintings for the Immaterial Internet Era," by the Artsy Editorial staff

November 20, 2014

In her first New York solo show at Garvey | Simon Art Access, Kate Carr presents work that can be variously read as sculpture, drawing, or painting. Her primary focus is line, as is evident in her reductivist compositions. As Carr writes, “The formal quality that concerns me most is line. I see line in my materials. I look for line in the world. It has a rhythm, a hum. It both differentiates space and connects it. A line is the simplest mark. It is a part of a whole.” Indeed, this relationship between the part and the whole is a driving element of her work, with lines crossing, intersecting, overlapping, and running under the entirety of an image.

Susan Schwalb's article published



"At a time when art is being redefined by new and rapidly changing digital tools and technology that often deny the man-made mark, silverpoint offers artists a connection with a potent creative tradition. The fine delicate lines inevitably reveal the artist's hand: an affirmation of human presence."

Gallery Hopping on Thursdays: BY KAREN VANEGAS-

In Chelsea, Garvey | Simon Art Access will be presenting new metalpoint drawings by artist, Susan Schwalb

October 2, 2013

An artist’s approach to line and color perpetually dictates the feelings that their artwork will evoke from viewers. It is a critical facet of the aesthetic process that grants complexity to art and sets styles apart. This is one reason we often find mid-career and established artists rigorously developing their craft, even after they hit a career peak. With that in mind, we explore exhibitions in New York City showcasing recent work by Bill Scott and Susan Schwalb, two passionate artists who continue to capture the attention of the selective art world with their arresting artwork.

“Blown,” her most recent series, is a deep meditation on, yes, chewing gum: it’s strange shapely pleasure, born from a certain oral fixation which moves beyond youth and into darker more cryptic mouths."
