John Morris Thursday, December 4 6-9 pm
New York artist John Morris presents a series of meticulous and beautiful drawings in a body of work called The Schumpeter Drawings. Joseph Schumpeter, the 20th-century Austrian-born economist, developed a theory called “creative destruction,” dealing with the birth and death of companies and economic change. Morris sees a parallel between Schumpeter’s theories and his own methods of creation, and these small-scale drawings are named in honor of this connection. Dots, patterns, webs, grids and other markings of utmost delicacy make up these complex, multilayered drawings in graphite, wax, crayon and ink.
The Schumpeter Drawings will be on exhibition through January 3. Shift continues through January 31. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
