Make/Work Episode 26: Christine Hiebert


In episode 26 of Make/Work, host Scott Pinkmountain speaks with visual artist Christine Hiebert. Hiebert has focused on drawing for nearly 30 years. She has shown at museums and galleries all over the world, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Her work is both abstract and organic, investigating the nature and language of line.

Hiebert speaks with Scott about limitations, the relationship between drawing and musical improvisation, kinetic interrogation, and of course, lines.

I love the empty page. I love it before I start. I love it with one tiny mark on it.
