Helen Dennis "Projected Drawings"

The LAB Gallery

poster for Helen Dennis "Projected Drawings"

This event has ended.

The show "Projected Drawings," will unite the notions and essence of photography into a single large scale installation, filling the entire space of The LAB Gallery. Dennis will be hand drawing a mirrored reflection of the intersection of 47th and Lexington Avenue, creating a distilled inversion of the urban environment onto the gallery wall. Helen Dennis’s process typically uses urban architectural photographs projected onto tracing paper to guide the hand drawn sketches of her subjects. In then laying the ink on tracing paper drawings down on top of photographic paper and exposing it to the light, she creates a negative positive line image of her original photograph. For "Projected Drawings" the end result will remain the same with a white on black linear distillation of an urban landscape, but the process will be approached from the opposite angle, using light reflective pens on a solid black surface. The lines will no longer be a bi-product as they are in Helen’s typical process, but will become the primary source of the image.
