David Rabinowitch

Untitled, No. 64

1995
In the 1970s David Rabinowitch regularly visited New York's Central Park, where he made small sketches of a beech tree. More than twenty years later, Rabinowitch returned his focus to trees - in this instance elms in another New York green space, Tompkins Square Park. These large-scale works, drawn with a crayon composed of ground charcoal and beeswax, are ecstatic in their sense of movement, as the interplay of lines and sweeping gestures seem to echo the constant shifting of the artist's eye from his subject to the page.
