About the work
Synapse, in Memory of Sarah Charlesworth relates to the artist’s series of drawings 100 Points on a Line: gestural lines lead from 100 points on one side of a long horizontal rectangle traveling towards the opposite edge and in that journey arching, crossing, bending, and straightening to end in a series of undulating loops, curves, and waves.
