Merging formal dexterity with nuanced approaches to race and gender and the experience of “living in the body,”

Los-Angeles based artist Christina Quarles’ intimate drawings and lush canvases present worlds brimming with

desire and discomfort, as well as profound suggestions about the psychological reach and physical limitations

of mark-making. Drawn from two private collections, this unique exhibition at the Richmond Center features

a pair of iconic paintings from the body of work that launched Christina’s career, as well as a suite of fifty

drawings that create an unmistakable through-line from the artist’s earliest work to her present-day paintings.
