    Colter Jacobsen

    Upon entering Colter Jacobsen’s “Fathom,” you are invited to take a pencil in each hand, stand in front of an empty London Records Group album sleeve, close your eyes, raise your arms, and draw two lines where the pencils in your hands hit the wall. A couple of weeks into the run, two thickets had begun to form at the entrance to the gallery. The invitation encourages you to understand drawing as a means to become intimate: with people, places, histories.

    Looking at Jacobsen’s art is like eavesdropping on a private conversation between friends. Each work is accompanied by a text, accessed via QR
