About this artwork

In 1968 and 1969, Canright participated in the Nonplussed Some exhibitions, part of a series of shows at the Hyde Park Art Center by the artists now collectively described as Imagists. She has described the evolution and creation of this drawing: “In the early 70s, I was rethinking works on paper and looking for a way to make drawings that were nonobjective, exacting, linear, and true to my sensibility. This is how I arrived at the idea that I wanted to make drawings within paper not on it; paper itself was the underpinning of content.”
