Hedwige Jacobs

CTRL Gallery feature artist who draws up arguments of overcrowding and loneliness

Hedwige Jacobs was drawing houses long before the current realty crisis, but her works take on new meaning in these days of economic upheaval. Addressing themes of overcrowding and loneliness, Jacobs gives us Domino, a string of homes with red roofs — each either leaning or pushing on the house next to it. Continuing the theme in High Rise, she stacks houses on top of each other, creating a cramped feeling. But as crowded as her houses might seem, Jacobs infuses loneliness into each piece, with every drawing seeming to drown in white, negative space. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Through February 21. CTRL Gallery, 3907 Main. For information, call 713-523-2875 or visit www.ctrlgallery.com. Free.

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Jan. 9. Continues through Feb. 21, 2009
