John Haber reviews an exhibition of monumental drawings by Trisha Brown at Sikkema Jenkins & Co., New York, on view through January 25, 2012.

Haber writes that Brown's drawings "look like nothing so much as late Pollock, when the canvas all but emptied out, color vanished, and the human figure almost emerged. A painter of Pollock's time only wished that he had sheets of paper this large and, compared to stretched canvas, this close to the wall. Her ten large drawings are not identical in size, but they can easily look it, and they make the gallery a kind of theater."
