Premonition is an exhibition of ink and mixed media drawings on Mitsumata paper by Zea Morvitz.
In her Gallery Route One exhibit Premonition, Zea Morvitz continues her investigation of mark-making. Morvitz uses graphite marks and a buildup of ink lines to structure space and define an image within the field, citing Chinese and Japanese brush paintings as a primary influence. Morvitz writes:
“At work in the studio I disappear inside the drawing, exploring the image that appears as I draw. I don’t know the final form the drawing will take but I experience a premonition about it. Something happens as the image takes shape on the paper that continues to invite the act of drawing into it. The image stays receptive of change until the defining marks crystallize the structure is complete. Discovering an unforeseen image is an important part of my practice.”
