Known for utilizing common and manufactured materials as components in her work, Donovan recently made a series of seventeen works on paper using rubber bands and ink. The drawings, from 2005, are on Kozo-shi paper.
This is Tara Donovan’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. In March 2006 Untitled (Plastic Cups), a topographical landscape made up of nearly 3 million plastic cups was exhibited at PaceWildenstein 22nd Street.
Tara Donovan has earned acclaim for her ability to discover how the inherent physical characteristics of an object might allow it to be transformed into art. The artist goes on to explore the multiplication of these interactions, at times utilizing hundreds of thousands or millions of units, to generate powerful perceptual phenomenon and subtle atmospheric effects.
