Kuhr+Lyons Drawings

Artist: Alexis Kuhr
Title: Domestic Pyramid II, 2007
Medium: Graphite and Inkjet on Paper

I can really appreciate the clean and minimalist technique Kuhr obviously has a facility for (what’s wrong with white space, anyway?). This work is part of a series of triangles that she seems to place in the white universe up above, and the miniature version of the same triangle, with a tip dipped in faux wood paneling lends the work a certain cleanness, a simplicity I really like. I let my eyes wander from the first piece to the second and back again and it was a losing battle: her triangles had super soul.
