Shantell Martin is proud to announce the opening of her latest show we’ll get there - a collaborative exhibition of drawings and photographs by Shantell Martin and Theo Coulombe.
The exhibition consists of drawings made by Shantell Martin in San Francisco while on a road trip in 2017, on the way back from a show at Chandran Gallery in Los Angeles. Accompanying her drawings are photographs by Theo Coulombe documenting her site-specific murals made during the trip, as well as video captured by, actress and director Laksmi Hedemark. Martin used the road as her canvas, making a drawing a day with markers and soluble water-based spray paint. Coulombe captured her process of using continuous line drawing with his large-format film cameras, photographing her interaction with landscapes such as the salt flats, Powder Mountain in Utah, and on Chicago shore of Lake Michigan.
Against these large, open landscapes she created map-like drawings done with her usual grace: a meditation of lines, a language of characters, both autobiographical and dreamlike. Martin views her work as “a vehicle to forge new connections between education, design, philosophy and technology,” an ongoing inquiry into how these new models are transforming the way art is made and consumed.
