In the Project Room: Allyson Strafella has been working with a typewriter making drawings for nearly twenty years. During that time she has developed marks that are unique to her visual language: a drawing language ‘written’ by type, and a written language drawn as mark and form. Early in her practice, a question emerged: are these images details of something much larger than what is seen on the page or are they full-scale landscapes as seen from the sky above? That her images typed could hover between these two spaces/places creates lasting provocation.
