Fiona Banner at MoMA

Fiona Banner Nude Standing 2006 pencil on paper 106.25" x 69.25" [installation view]


I spotted this drawing by Fiona Banner from the floor of the atrium space at MoMA yesterday. It's hanging on the third floor and part of it can be seen through a cutout in the wall. It's a very beautiful thing, a new acquisition for the Museum, but I'm not surprised that I was attracted to it, because of what I had seen the last time I saw the artist's work. Here is a 2006 post.

Please excuse the imperfect image (although MoMA's own is even less adequate, and the reflections on the plexiglas here do seem to add another level of mystery to the work).
