Ewan Gibbs: New York / Chicago Opening Reception

Richard Gray Gallery is pleased to present New York / Chicago, a solo exhibition of drawings by British artist Ewan Gibbs at the gallery’s New York location from April 25 – June 29. New York / Chicago will open with a reception for the artist on April 25, 6-8 PM.

Renowned British artist Ewan Gibbs creates intimately scaled portraits of the built environment. Working from photographs taken during his travels, Gibbs carefully renders images of urban landmarks using his methodical drawing technique. The resulting images infuse the iconic manufactured exteriors of the city with an inner nostalgia and demand close observation.

New York / Chicago presents a recent body of work comprising parallel but distinct series of drawings that are based on the artist’s personal encounters in the two cities. Each drawing contains thousands of minuscule pen and pencil marks and pinpricks—a system developed by Gibbs over twenty-five years ago after seeing knitting patterns containing various graphic symbols within a large, organized grid.
