Red Arrow Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition, Moons of Another, a solo show with Bethany Carlson. The artist reception for Moons of Another opens on Saturday, August 11th, 2018 and runs through September 2nd, 2018.
Bethany Carlson’s drawings employ a practice of addition and subtraction. Through her chosen medium of charcoal and graphite, her detailed and delicate black and white drawings challenge the eye on what is being seen. “These works employ imagery of a space that can scarcely be reached or examined. As such, they are defined more by absence than by presence. They are linked to a void that is often charged with mystery and wonder. Much like the thoughts and experiences of those no longer living, these spaces are deeply meaningful to ponder and impossible to fully comprehend.” – Bethany Carlson, Moons of Another statement, 2018
