Matthew Marks Gallery is hosting a new exhibition of Jasper John’s drawings from February, 2 until April, 12, 2008.  This will likely be one of the more significant shows the gallery will show this year.  The opening is 6PM, Friday Febuary 1st. 

The subject of the exhibition is mainly drawings made over the ten past years. Much of the work is derived from images of flags, maps and numerals. The artist draws using ink, watercolour and acrylic. A hard-cover book edition of the catalogue will be available including an essay by the art historian Thomas Crow with over 5O illustrations.
