Geer Drawing

Tara Geer, detail from drawing, ca. 2012-3. Photo Rachel Cohen.

I met the artist Tara Geer at the MacDowell Colony in 2002. For the next nine years or so, we were both living in New York, and I spent quite a bit of time at her studio, looking. Eventually, I came to have three of her works, which are drawings.

This is one that does not have a title, done before May of 2013, probably in early 2013 or late 2012.

It is work that takes attention very seriously, and I hope, even through these photos, will offer contemplation, at the end of another difficult week, looking ahead to another difficult week.
