Into the Wild: To Crash is Divine

New York City

Deborah Buck’s Into the Wild: To Crash is Divine, curated so thoughtfully by Jennifer Baahng at La Mama Galleria, connects the thinking-through process of drawing to the loose shaping of crowds and identity. Buck’s work breaks down the boundaries between modes of cartooning and abstraction to operate as covert satire. Between her figurescapes and phase shifts of pastiche, Buck generates erased zones of gray that she then utilizes as an important formal resource. By revealing the trace and shadow of her expressive hand, she makes the evidence of her thinking and the provisional sense of community her subject, allowing the shadows and index of drawing to form productive tension with flat color.
