Karla Black

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Karla Black, the artist's second solo show with the gallery. On view at 525 West 19th Street in New York will be sculptures made specifically for the space and completed on site.

Combining traditional artistic materials such as chalk, paper, paint, and plaster with everyday items including eye shadow, earth, ribbon, toilet paper, and cotton wool, Black's works are at once elaborate and simple, expressive and restrained. They challenge their own medium by being "almost" or "only just" objects with a close affinity to painting, performance art, and installation. As the artist notes, the "most important thing about the work is that it prioritizes material experience over language as a way to learn about and understand the world."
