DESCRIPTION

From November 3 through November 27, 2010, the Phoenix Gallery, 210 Eleventh Avenue at 25th Street, Chelsea, NY presents the exhibition SYDNEY DRUM DIGITAL/PAINTING. This exhibition features six large paintings, using oil and digital media on linen, and two smaller paintings on paper. The large multi-panel works explore the intersections of painting, digital media, and photography. Some panels are hand-painted (a labor-intensive, low-tech method); other panels use digital technology to explore how it has changed the way we view the world around us (an emphatically high-tech process.) Most of the multi-panel paintings incorporate a digitally-created image, printed on canvas and then stretched, as part of the completed art works. The smaller paintings on paper are totally abstract, using narrow white lines to grid areas of vivid color.

The well-known critic, Gerrit Henry, in an Art in America review of her work, wrote that Drum mixed up all kinds of esthetic impulses, and came out on top through sheer determination of her artistic will. He penned that Drum handled color with unswerving confidence.

Drum has extensively exhibited in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, as well as in Asia. Her work is represented in the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.
