Wisps of smoke? Clouds? Woven threads? An unknown species of jellyfish? New York artist Mark Sheinkman’s romantic, mysterious and delicate drawings are the focus of this catalog from his first European solo exhibition. To create these dramatic works of art, Sheinkman applies graphite powder to the ground and rubs it into the completely black surface until the white plumes appear chiselled out of the darkness of the paper, in a mesmerizing filigree effect. The drawings, some as large as six feet across, inspired curator Ulrike Schick to write that Sheinkman “describes time through space … the fleetingness of a moment that is captured without becoming rigid.” Photos include the gallery installation from the museum show.
