The Back

Lynn Retson

Opens Thu Apr 4, 6-8pm

On view April 4-25, 2024

Zabar Project Gallery

Retson’s richly-hued black and white figure drawings offer up an unexpected perspective, capturing her subjects from behind. The realistic drawings are built up over time, using pencil, paper, charcoal and chalk. She presents her subjects’ backs to remind us of the ways in which the body can often surprise us.
