Erin Fostel: Vanishing Scale
July 6 – August 18, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, July 6, 5:00 PM
Baltimore-based artist Erin Fostel creates gorgeous, large-scale drawings. Her subjects tend to be people, places and things drawn with detailed perfection. Her recent series of architectural drawings began as she mourned the loss of her father, an architect, in 2014. Fostel set about exploring parts of Baltimore City she did not know well, places she thought would interest her dad, and this process of discovery became the foundation of her new work. Her interest is not in simply documenting buidings, but in capturing feeling. By exposing the drawing’s framework, she reveals both immensity of the structure and her own grief.
