Robin Kandel: The 45th Parallel
October 13 – November 11, 2016
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 13, 5:30 - 7:30

“This work is about a specific place and any place. It’s about midpoints, landmarks, road trips, road maps, and long stretches that take us somewhere and elsewhere”.

— Robin Kandel

Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce Robin Kandel’s sixth solo exhibition with the gallery entitled The 45th Parallel. True to her previous explorations, Kandel consistently examines and dissects our notions of distance and location. Her practice remains deliberately slow and meditative, creating a fluid rhythm of straight lines that layer to bring about a kinetic yet minimal optical effect. Showing over 20 new works, ranging in size, Kandel employs acrylic paints and graphite on various materials such as vintage maps and wood panels.

This series of work relates to Kandel’s primary school memories of first thinking about distance and location while making paper globes in geography class. She revisited the experience recently when she came face to face with the 45th Parallel while stopping through Traverse City, Michigan. For Kandel, something that only existed conceptually, becamereal—points on a map are every bit as abstract as theyare concrete, embodying meaning as well as information.
