Andrea Zittel – Works on Paper

Sprüth Magers will present the exhibition Works on Paper by American artist Andrea Zittel, showcasing 26 new drawings that all hinge, in one way or another, on planar structures. Planar panels are flat rectangular elements that form the building blocks of so much of the reality that we construct around ourselves, from benches to bed frames to walkways. 

Zittel's artistic work regularly traverses the boundaries between art and architecture. One of her new series on view, Planar Panel Studies: Vast and Specific (2020), depicts planar shapes lifted from print design, architecture and outdoor signage, which are then superimposed on loosely painted watercolor landscapes that evoke the high-desert Joshua Tree region where the artist has lived for two decades.
