New Yorker cartoonist Ed Koren is profiled in the New York Times. He has a gallery show at alma mater Columbia.
Ken Johnson, writing for the Times, notes that it's
" ... worth visiting this show just to see the full-scale ink drawings on fine, heavyweight paper that are reduced to gray, postcard-size images in The New Yorker, in which his work has appeared since 1962."Koren, who lives in Vermont now, draws his originals really, really big. I remember seeing these rather large boxes, a couple of feet wide on either side, postmaked from Vermont, in The New Yorker offices. The return address was Ed Koren. Inside: his HUGE originals.
The “Edward Koren: The Capricious Line” show is through June 12 at the Wallach Art Gallery, Columbia University
He also has another show in Chelsea titled “Edward Koren: Parallel Play, Drawings 1979-2010” through June 2 at the Luise Ross Gallery.
