Featured works on Exhibition A
Is it a knife or some exotic tree leaf? A set of tiny high heels or strings of lowercase “A”s? Simone Shubuck is an expert at making broken drawings: extremely intricate and almost impossible to pin down. Whether she’s depicting shell monsters or a frayed ribbon, her hand seeks the comfort of repetition, but with a novelty that pushes the imagery beyond obsession. Embracing her background in floral design, Shubuck’s interest lends a steady subtext to her work which is in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.
