Frontispace is pleased to announce an exhibition of work by Colleen Buzzard, Granularities. For Colleen, drawn lines map terrain, both physical and mental. A single line set in motion marks a thought in action. In her work, she looks at the relationship of lines on planes to drawing in space. Planes, lines, and shadows become architectural elements in the material world, and the threshold between two dimensions and three points back to the scaffolds of our thinking.

Colleen Buzzard has been a practicing artist since 1985. She began in ceramics and moved more exclusively to drawing as the foundation of her work in the 1990s. She was based in London, England, for 14 years, where her work was shown at the Whitechapel Art Gallery and other venues. She now lives and works in Rochester, NY. She has enjoyed opportunities to create installation environments in solo shows as well as participate in the dialogue of group shows. Her work has been featured as covers for nature science journals and poetry publications. Her work is included in the collections of the RIT Wallace Library Special Collection and the King St. Stephen Museum in Hungary, as well as private collections in England, Germany and the USA.
