"FORCE MULTIPLIER +"


Schema Projects is pleased to announce “Force Multiplier +,” a solo show of notebook drawings by Andrew Zarou, curated by Jeanne Heifetz.

"Andrew Zarou has long been known for his resourcefulness with materials. Two years ago, while recuperating from surgery, Zarou found himself on enforced bed rest – and profoundly bored. With no access to his usual media, he reached for the gridded notebook and gel pens he had bought months earlier -- almost on a dare -- precisely because they were so far from his preferred way of working"...

opening NOVEMBER 16th, 2013

Originally a nautical term for surveying and charting depths of water, “Soundings for Fathoms” were traditionally done by hand with either a pole or weighted rope. Since the invention of SONAR, ‘sounding’ now refers to an electronic pulse or vibration that is emitted from the water’s surface to echo-locate the delineating edges of a target.

An edge is created when a form or a boundary comes to be defined, whether by random accident or by willful intention.  Clinical, mechanical, subliminal, incidental, haphazard – in visual art-making, the hand that renders edge-work reveals the temperament and attitude of the maker.

The four artists represented have their own customized stockpiles of visual imagery, and an inventiveness for material resourcefulness that is both continually developing and deeply personal.  What is shared among them is a primary identification with being a painter, but with an open, ecumenical perspective towards mediums, as well as an intuitive and improvisatory approach toward composition and process.

This combination of factors unites them in a sensibility that makes it hard to determine which cause, accident or intention, is in the driver’s seat.  Ambiguity prevails in such a way that handwriting analysis cannot accurately interpret the personality traits behind the hand.  Because these artists operate in this temperamental grey zone, the viewer  is engaged with the softer, non-declarative realm of human touch and intimacy.
