Edited by Nancy Princenthal.
As Nancy Princenthal writes in the text that accompanies this volume of Heide Fasnacht's drawings, "Seen from a certain perspective, or at a certain magnification, all that is solid melts into air--or clouds of atoms, or drifts of luminous vapor. Bodies, whether of land, water or flesh, are unstable aggregates; they are accidents, caught only by coincidence in forms we recognize. For several years, Heide Fasnacht has been tracking the energy released when that familiar cohesion is ruptured, and the always-present world of particles in collision is made manifest. Thus her images, in two dimensions and three, of detonations, implosions, geysers, volcanoes, fireworks, ticker tape parades, sneezes...." The artist's drawings, based on photographs and executed in pencil, are exact and heavily worked, variously vivid, patterned, luxuriant, scuffed, scratched and fresh.
