Arcology is a multi-media, solo exhibition of new works by Ilona Anderson. Her drawings on paper incorporate elegant figures, animals that at times take on hybrid qualities, and geometric abstraction. Numerous drawings, each made on an intimate scale, connect in unexpected ways, forming loose networks from one sheet of paper to another to form a dizzying and elaborate installation that is beyond the human scale. Her drawings fuse the borders of black and white grounds and work equally well on each. The resulting diverse and radiant conglomerate says as much about the potential for transnational understanding as it does for racial relations, both in her native South Africa and in the United States.
