Correspondence with Repetition is a collection of distinct ink meanderings by Cheryl Levin. Placed unconventionally on surfaces “lounging around”, Levin creates an environment where her intricate drawings converse with each other and the viewer.
Correspondence with Repetition is an on-going experimentation of Cheryl Levin’s previous work, “Forms For a Continued Life” which was exhibited at DVAA in 2021. Levin’s approach uses the repetition of line and minimalism as primary to her art practice. She uses inks with dip pen and brush on paper to produce series of lines that are akin to written letters— with an introductory paragraph, a body in the middle, and a concluding paragraph. The lines, being like thoughts, follow each other and correspond with each other and Levin’s inner self. Levin uses the whole picture plane as a shape for her line journeys in addition to individual shapes salvaged from her late husband’s metal working studio (as per her previous work). This current body of work presented in Correspondence with Repetition includes shapes that bump into each other, folds in the paper, and new colors.
The exhibition will be on view in Gallery 2 at Da Vinci Art Alliance from June 28 - July 23 with an opening reception on Saturday, July 1st from 4-7pm.
