Force Field: Drawings by Christine Hiebert—An exhibition at the Hudson River Museum

In this selection of monumental abstract drawings, Christine Hiebert investigates the nature and language of line and how different types of marks relate to one another and energize a blank field.

The Brooklyn-based artist is recognized for her abstract responses to architectural settings and natural spaces, such as the desert and range topographies of the American West. Over the past three decades, drawing has played a central role in Hiebert’s artistic journey, whether it be with charcoal, graphite, and ink, or even tape and dirt.

For Hiebert, the gesture of a line has an inherent energy and direction, played out on a sheet of paper. There is a tension between her marks and areas left blank, and the white voids begin to suggest light. She states:

“I send out a line to negotiate the blank field of the paper, the unknown. I try to find my place there, to engage with space in a way that is both freeing and creates a sense of belonging.”

This exhibition is organized by the Hudson River Museum. #ChristineHiebert #HRMAbstraction
