Marsha Cottrell

 55 Washington Street, Suite 258

 

Marsha Cottrell’s monochrome abstractions transcend the quotidian office computer
and printer used in their making. In playful exchange with her chosen medium, the
artist nudges mathematically defined lines and shapes across the field of the screen, registering the intangible information in multiple passes of carbon-based toner using a laser printer. There is no corresponding digital file for each unique image; instead the paper is the canvas onto which each decision is materially preserved. Schematic vector information gives way to space and light, resuscitating the corporeal.

Cottrell has received awards from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, the PollockKrasner Foundation, the New York Foundation for the Arts and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. Recent solo exhibitions include Anthony Meier Fine Arts in San Francisco (2016), and Eleven Rivington, New York (2015)
