New York’s Eleven Rivington gallery now represents the artist Marsha Cottrell, and on February 27 will open her first one-person show in the city in more than a decade, at its two Lower East Side locations. (Her last show here was in 2003 at Henry Urbach Architecture.)
Cottrell is known for black-and-white drawings—sometimes spectral and smoky, sometimes intricately geometric—that she makes with laser-printer toner on relatively modest sheets of paper. Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery of Art, in Washington, D.C., and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
The artist’s last appearance in New York was in 2014 at Eleven Rivington, where she was included in the group show “The Actual,” alongside five other artists who use photography and new media in pursuit of abstract ends.
