Christine Tarkowski: the old Moon in the new Moon’s arms


The work at The Arts Club of Chicago is a sweep of suspended, levitating entanglements– not defying gravity but caught up in the physics of our planet. Each piece is an individually hand-drawn contour line using molten glass as the drawing material. The drawing requires a quick action to articulate. Time, gravity, temperature, physicality, and physics are deployed to register a line which was, seconds before, a viscous molten mass–not unlike the molten mass at the core of our planet.
