Drawings About the Present Quickly Become Works About the Past


October 17 - November 14, 2009

Since 1996 Danica Phelps has been documenting her daily activities through a system of drawings that has become increasingly layered and complex. The resulting works vary from subtle monochromatic panels to linear narratives which bring out the wonderous in the mundane aspects of everyday life.

This exhibition marks the arrival of a new subject in her work which has flavored every element and every moment of her life, the birth of her son, Orion Akash Phelps-Chaudhuri.

Danica's work has been reviewed in the New York Times, Artforum, Art in America, the New Yorker, the Village Voice, and Time Out New York. She has had exhibitions at Zach Feuer Gallery (LFL), New York, NY, Nolan/Judin, Berlin, Ritter/Zamet, London, New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, NY, Institute of Contemporary Art, Portland, ME, PS1/MoMA, New York, NY, ICA at Palm Beach, Palm Beach, FL, and la caixa in Barcelona.
