A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce Private Corners, an exhibition of new work by Carolyn Martin.

Continuing the investigations begun in drawings exhibited at A.I.R. Gallery in 2009, Carolyn Martin has further de-emphasized the image of the white picket fence, reducing it to a spare scaffolding of faint lines, darkened just enough to be recognizable. Martin juxtaposes these horizontal and vertical lines against irregular shapes of collaged paper crisscrossed in all directions with dark, smeared charcoal strokes that create depth. In these deep spaces Martin gives us a glimpse of the complexity and chaos of human life behind the stable architecture of society.
