Beam Editions

For Bad+ Bordeaux Beam Editions presents a selection of works by artist Linda Karshan from the early 1990s through to the present day. In the artist’s early work we see the emergence of grids and geometric structures through expressive mark making in pen, ink and graphite. These drawings are the forerunners to Karshan’s most iconic works, the artist’s highly reductive grids that continue to be the focus of her drawing practice, also on display at Bad+.

 Karshan’s mesmerising grids and geometric structures are formed from horizontal, vertical, diagonal and curved lines using time and rhythm. Relying on precise intuition co-ordinated breathing and her own judgement without the need for instruments of measure, the artist ‘performs’ a geometry that is innate within every human being.

Plato observed mathematics and geometry as the building blocks of everyday life. Our ability as human beings to recognise and utilise this universal geometry is perhaps what differentiates us from all other species.

Karshan’s work is a demonstration of human’s elemental ability to recognise and generate these forms. A natural geometry that is the essence of the universe.

Collections

Karshan’s work features in major collections such as MOMA New York, The Courtauld, The Tate and The British Museum.
