In On the Wall Robert Ludwig presents a large-scale drawing utilizing charcoal and paint to create a monochromatic, gestural, and geometric installation. Contrary to Ludwig’s signature style of horizontal and vertical lines that create simple geometric divisions, which are then filled with rich yet subtle monochromatic colors, the installation will have expressive marks and motion unconfined to the grid structure. The suggested geometric format, combined with tonal and spatial interplay, and the vigorous hand of the artist, create an optical ambiguity between the open and closed space that engages the viewer in a delicate visual balance.
