In Small Worlds, five contemporary artists explore space and perspective via paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs.
Charles Kanwischer uses graphite pencil to create "portraits" of homes - and their interior and exterior spaces - that are in a state of quiet emptienss, even loneliness. For Small Worlds he premiers a new body of work featuring homes within a mile radius of the Toledo Museum of Art, rendered so meticulously that they resemble black-and-white photographs.
Kanwischer attended the University of Iowa and the Yale University School of Art. He now resides in Waterville, Ohio and is an associate professor of drawing at Bowling Green State University.
