Label Text:
Exhibition Label, 40 Years / 40 Artists, January 22–March 8, 2015:
Eve Aschheim’s approaches to image-making—drawings, photograms, and paintings—concern line and light, interior and exterior space, rhythm and pattern, and gesture and a sense of play using each medium’s unique processes and material. Her work evokes architectural and natural space, and affirms the value of the handmade, constructed, and seen.

To create her photograms, she places the mylar drawing on photo paper, exposes it to light, and develops the photo. Marks that Aschheim had erased from her drawing during the creative process become visible. The photograms are a way to see where she’s been andwhere she’s going — and to examine how she got there. - Loretta Yarlow
