Linda Karshan: Signs of Men and Footfalls
A exhibition of drawings from the last two decades, and a new edition of prints by Karshan, Footfalls: a series of twenty-seven etchings in an edition of ten copies.
According to Vitruvius, and to Cicero, too, the fourth-century Greek philosopher, Aristippus, found himself ‘shipwrecked and cast
on the Rhodian shore.' He despaired.
He then happened to notice some geometrical figures scratched into the sand–triangles, perhaps, or circles, or lines suspended from points. He said to his companions, ‘We can hope for the best, for I see signs of men.' (Marcus Vitruvius Pollio. De Architectura. Book VI circa 15 BC)
