Marlborough is pleased to present an exhibition of New York artist William Anastasi’s Blind Drawings, a group of elegant works on paper created over a fifty-year period using various “unsighted” strategies.

About

Instead of the primacy of hand-to-eye coordination in traditional drawing, Anastasi’s emphasis is on hand-to-mind coordination, in the tradition of surrealist automatism, surrendering the artist’s conscious and/or manual control in order to consider the graphic results as messages of some significance communicated by the whole self, the body in tandem with the mind. -  From ​Charles Stuckey's  catalogue introduction for the exhibition.
