Diane Samuels’ Three Scrolls draws inspiration from three groundbreaking and timeless stories: Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, or The Whale, William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, and Richard Powers’ The Overstory. “Through the painstaking act of transcription—writing out by hand whole texts in her meticulous micro-script—Diane Samuels gives physical form to the transformative experience of reading, mining her chosen texts as drawing, as narrative, and as process. In doing so, she invites viewers to inhabit a space between visual and verbal modes of perception, a space where the act of reading, writing and seeing vibrate with symphonic energy.” Her work is in numerous private and public collections and has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Samuels will give a lecture on Tuesday, October 5 at 5:10pm at the McDonough.
