Linda Matalon began Middle Falls, a suite of thirty-six drawings, in 1998. This exhibition marked the first time that this major work by the artist was shown. Each drawing in the suite corresponds to one of the thirty-six sculptures Matalon had made at that point in her career. Composed of graphite and wax, the drawings constitute a contemplation (rather than a documentation) of specific objects and the life that brought them into being. The suite’s title derives from the town in upstate New York where Matalon initiated this project, but it also bravely acknowledges the struggle and promise of the artist’s existence at mid-life.
