What do the visual principles of modernism look like today in the hands of contemporary artists? Observed Ratios presents three contemporary New York artists: Shoshana Dentz, Caitlin Masley, and Seher Shah, whose practices are grounded in drawing but extend to diverse media of painting, drawing, installation, sculpture, and photography. Their engagement with modernist forms and visual vocabulary, inflected with their own individual histories and interests, produce invigorated and updated responses to modern inquiries. In the exhibition Observed Ratios, whether positioned inside or outside at eye level, hovering above something much larger or smaller than oneself, or enveloped in relation to an indeterminate perspective, the artists’ and the viewers’ attention becomes focused on the act of looking in real space.
