Subway Drawings

March 30 - April 13, 2016
177 Canal Street, New York

MX Gallery is pleased to present Subway Drawings, the first solo exhibition by Nate Antolik, featuring 33 works on paper selected from among hundreds of sketches from his daily practice. Curated by Shelby Jackson.

"A few years ago I started drawing people on the subway while on my way to work. It started out as a way to practice. I would lock onto something– a face, legs, someone’s shoe. To draw someone, you have to stare. Sometimes they notice, but I try not to disturb them. I like how people look on the train; they are between places and for a few minutes they’re still. Then they get off or it’s my stop and I’m out of time."
