Press Street’s Antenna Gallery presents ASH COLUMN – a new series of drawings by Angela Driscoll.  These graphite drawings reference still frames of an eruption of Anak Krakatau in Indonesia’s Sunda Strait.

The volcanic eruption is a violent act. In these drawings, the eruption is prolonged in an effort to create a greater understanding of its movement. Each drawing is created through graphite rubbings of small circles. This repetitive mark accumulates and then reveals the structure within the column of ash. It is through this sequence of images that the minute structural changes of the column become noticeable. Time is expanded in order to focus our attention on small moments within monumental events.

On view September 10 – October 2, 2011. Gallery Hours: Saturdays and Sundays, 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm, and by appointment.
