Conversations with Time, Past and Present
This inspirational book includes an introduction to Karshan’s unique drawing practice and personal history by Jonathan Casciani, a transcript from the film
Covid-19: Conversation directed by Ishmael Fiifi Annobil and an essay by Giulia Martina Weston that relates the work to Renaissance history and a ‘library of experience’.
“…because I can stand, and he could not.”
Conversations with Time Past and Present brings together a body of drawings produced by Linda Karshan during the first Covid-19 lockdown in New York. The memory of her father’s crippling polio affliction in the 1952/53 epidemic and his gallant battle against it became the inspiration for this prolific body of work.
