From Here: Drawings by Edwin Schlossberg

Ronald Feldman Fine Arts

Oct. 18, 2024 - Nov. 15, 2014

31 Mercer Street
New York, New York 10013

FROM HERE is a series of forty-one drawings created by Edwin Schlossberg from 2011 to 2013. They are based on photographs taken by the artist when looking out the window when traveling on a plane, as well as drawings based on looking out the window of his New York studio. The drawings are paired with the artist’s handwritten descriptions of his thoughts at the time of making the image.

With this new body of work, Schlossberg continues to investigate the relationship between text and imagery as he moves from the particulars of perception to conceptual overviews.
