“”Marking Space” is… a group of hangings, but her [Widenor’s] elements are linear rather than flat. She has wrapped wood dowels with linen thread and suspended them from the ceiling, so the viewers may walk around and into the area they define. To me, the result is a kind of spatial drawing using an infinitely variable configuration of marks. It also has a sinister overtone, suggesting a dark rain, burdened with soot, streaking downward.” – Helen A. Harrison, The New York Times, January 22, 2006
