Wallspace is pleased to announce an exhibition by New York-based artist Donelle Woolford. This will be the artist’s second show at the gallery. Through her work Donelle Woolford investigates myth and the process by which art and literature contribute images, characters and story lines to public discourse and, through that circulation, become real.

Donelle Woolford’s new paintings focus on Cubism’s obsession with portraiture, surface tension, and multiple points of view. They are influenced not only by her desire to revisit the synthetic innovations of Picasso and Braque, but also by her exposure over the past few years and her increasing desire to have her paintings-and herself-return the exposure. As psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan wrote: “I am not simply the punctiform located at the point from which perspective is grasped. No doubt, in the depths of my eye, the picture is painted. The picture, certainly, is in my eye. I am in the picture.”
