“These drawings were made in reaction to a trip to the near east that the artist took in 2010. He visited Israel on a Taglit Journey and then traveled to Istanbul. They are small and obsessive in the tradition of the miniature. Automatic drawing introduces an unexpected layer to the traditional satire of religious and political conflict. Time is folded in on itself to sandwich the very ancient with the very modern. The body is the thread. The body is represented as the sensorial machine of our ruin.”

For his MFA thesis exhibition Walter Sutin presents a series of works on paper where the human body is the connective thread. These drawings were created in reaction to near east travels that Sutin took, which included a Taglit Journey to Isreal followed by a visit to Istanbul. Characterized by satire and conflict, the drawings are small and obsessive in the tradition of the miniature. Ruin is open by appointment, emai or call 619-764-8619 to set up a viewing.

Walter Sutin is an UC San Diego MFA Candidate
