Display caption

Made using a quill pen and ink, this drawing can be seen as an investigation into the possibilities

of abstract mark-making and the structural relationships of line and space. 'At times the forms are seen bunched together, closely affecting each other,' Guston wrote. 'They can cause each other to shrink, enlarge, absorb, repel, or seem to swallow one another. In intimate contact, they determine the shape of their existence, a mutual feeding is going on, before they move apart.'
