Posen’s ambitious new drawing installation explore scale, color, and the quality of line, engaging the walls, ceiling, and floor of the space, as well as the street outside it, with a circular trace of movement that has spatial, metaphorical, and poetic resonances.

The title Dancer/Mirror refers to the relationships between movement and stasis, gesture and structure, and artist and viewer. Assembling individual drawings in small groupings, Posen pushes his own conventions to bold conclusions, with drawings on all six surfaces of the room seeming to float, becoming alternately transparent and concrete. The entire space is thus be shaped and bent to expressive purposes, generating a sense of celebration, fluidity, and vibrant play between containment and expansion.
