"There is the distance we’ve come, and the distance we’ve yet to go; we are the point where these two lines meet." -- Robin Kandel

Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition, distance, featuring new drawings by Robin Kandel opening Wednesday, February 5, 2014. Robin Kandel’s new body of work considers distance as both literal and conceptual measurements. Kandel notes that while distance can be measured, we also express and interpret distance in more abstract terms; “when someone asks, ‘how far is it?’ we might answer, ‘about an hour,’ yet we quickly calculate and understand these casual measures of distance.” Kandel’s pencil drawings reflect the differences in how we experience distance. In her series, one mile drawings, Kandel expresses the literal measure of a mile; if all the lines of one drawing are laid end to end, the lines would measure a mile long. In the roadtrip series, the drawings come from Kandel’s memories of sitting in the back seat of the car with her etch-a-sketch during family road trips.

Robin Kandel received her BFA in painting at the University of Michigan in 1983 and was awarded the Pollack-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2001. Kandel has exhibited with museums and galleries internationally and throughout the United States. Her work is part of the collection of the San Jose Museum of Art.
