from the quiet by kim bissett

From the Quiet, 2010, paper construct with mixed media, 43 x 83 x .75 in.


"Drawing in charcoal and ink on large sheets of creamy, thick Rives BFK etching paper, Kim Bissett reenacts some of the gestures of sculpting in a different key, piling up two-dimensional acts until they move beyond the gestures of mapping and begin incarnations of their own. Feelings of freedom and relief as the artist discovers new methods are almost palpable in this new work.... Bissett's drawing are hybrid creatures, paper sculptures that remember weight and strain as they redefine the artist's relationship to the material world."
