Asphodel presents PRONE AND PLUMB, an exhibition of new graphic works by Joy Drury Cox, opening on Thursday March 5 and on view through Saturday April 18.

Prone carries the weight of physical pain—immovable, exhausted—often following a substantial expression of energy. Plumb, on the other hand is upright, energetic—though ultimately enervating. In three new series of drawings, Joy Drury Cox represents this pair of semantic antipodes as palindromic conceptual drawings, exercising what the artist terms “line dialectics.” Cox’s interdisciplinary artistic practice includes drawing, artist’s books, texts, and photography. Her works consider mapping, making, measuring, and marking and their variables roles in the politics of labor and the structures of everyday life.
