Subjects ranging from household still lifes to bondage are covered in the large-scale pen and ink drawings of Joan Linder. The artist’s recent work has been life size representations of the subjects – no easy feat when one remembers the fine point of a quill pen. Linder finds the scale of one to one lends an intimacy to the art, and that the “sleight, or sloppiness, of hand” can heighten this aspect. Also particularly interesting are Linder’s rope series of coloured inks on paper which make amazing use of negative space.
