In On the Wall Bruce W. Greenwood presents an installation entitled The Organizing Principle/Evolution in his first solo show for Carter Burden Gallery. For this installation the inspiration of Greenwood was to execute a single, elegant line evocative of the female torso that would also be instantly recognized as the artist's signature stroke. Employing a series of grids, transparencies and overlays, Greenwood utilizes unpainted sheetrock and delicate pencil lines to construct an anthropological model of the human figure.
