Lot Essay

Based in both Philadelphia and Maine, Astrid Bowlby is primarily recognized for her biomorphic black lines that fill her drawings, prints, and installations. The artist has stated: “It is just a drawing. This is important. It can be made again and will be made again. This touches upon the fleeting nature of things and the certainty of return. The drawing is a placeholder. Something and nothing. Special and ordinary. Repeatable, yet different every time.”
