BERLIN.- Kit Schulte Contemporary Art presents in the double solo exhibitions new drawings by Linda karshan and Koho Mori-Newton.

With "Big Dots", Koho Mori Newton challenges himself to created circles within their specific medium: the rotation. The circle in its natural form and the process of becoming one, is the main focus of his theme. The circle form, drawn from a free hand is imperfect, but will end up as a calm and perfect form through the continuation of the circular movement and the act of turning the paper. "Big Dots" tells stories about the circle coming into being, where as medium and purpose are not separated. Where is the circle in the circles? We can not recognize a single form, but we clearly discover the process of creation.

Jürgen Geiger writes: Do we ask: where is the a circle at a time in this formation of circles? We cannot determine it as a single object, but we do see it - and see much more.

The works by Koho Mori-Newton stand in direct dialogue with the drawings by Linda Karshan, whose work relies on her inner rhythms, pulses and counting. In her arrangements of marks, conjoint or separated, each line is drawn freely, without a ruler, marking out the movements of her body. The viewer can intuitively acknowledge her enormous concentration and control. No matter the size of the paper - nor her medium of support (paper, copperplate or woodbock), Karshan stays true to her working method: the paper is turned 90 degrees counter clockwise after each sequence of 2,4,6,8 or 16 counts. Over time, and in time, her lines have become longer, reflecting the longer time of their making. In the newest work, one perceives circular spots of light, or 'pops' between the marks.

Karshan writes her work and is inspired by a continuous philosophical and literary confrontation with texts by Plato, Kleist, Beckett, Albert, Varsari. Together with her own 'jottings', they provide her with a foundation to understand the human experience and to transform it into visual means.

Koho Mori-Newton was born in 1951 in Katsuyama, Fukui, Japan. He lives and works in Tübingen, Germany. From 1972 to 74 he studied at the Wako University in Tokyo. After extensive travels through Italy, Spain, France, Greece and Afrika, he continued his studies at the State Art School of Stuttgart, being a student of Rudolf Schoofs and K.R.H. Sonderborg. Mori-Newton is also a performance artist. His drawings are collector in major museums in Germany: Sammlungen der Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, der Staatliche Graphischen Sammlung München, der Staatlichen Kunsthalle Karlsruhe and the Morat-Institut for Art and Science in Freiburg.

Linda Karshan: Born in Minneapolis, MN, has lived in London since 1968. Trained in the Bauhaus method of drawing at Skidmore College, NY, and educated in the psychoanalytical theories of Donald Winnecott, Karshan took on her studio in London in 1983. Her work is regularly exhibited in galleries in London, Cologne, Munich, Berlin, New York, and San Francisco. Major museum exhibitions include
the British Museum (2011), the Courtauld Gallery, London and the Folkwang Museum, Essen (2010), Tang Museum, Saratoga Springs, NY (2007), Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge (2003), Sir John Soane’s Museum, London, and Institute Valencia d’Art Modern (2002).
