Drawing: Graphite (sprayed) on wove paper
14 1/4 x 22 7/8 in.
Date: 1968

Inspired by his study of aeronautical engineering at Brown University in the late 1950s, William Bollinger explored gravity, balance, and space in his work, most often in sculpture. In this drawing, the undulating areas of sprayed graphite create the sensation of being enveloped within the infinite expanse of the cosmos.
