In Crime and Passion, Marilyn Church presents eight of her historic courtroom drawings with six of her recent paintings in her first exhibition at Carter Burden Gallery. The exhibition highlights the artist’s recent work while also recognizing her career as a courtroom artist for The New York Times. Her courtroom drawings capture key moments in some of the most sensational criminal trials in New York’s history. These very public drawings, Church says, helped inspire her more personal paintings: “The very real narratives of the defendants’ lives led me to examine more intensely my own narrative and how to portray it in my painting.” Marilyn Church’s recent works focus on the abstraction of the figure. The result is mysterious and ambiguous, an intriguing contrast with the realism of the dramatic courtroom drawings.
