Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Chicago, Illinois USA
Inspiration for my abstract pencil drawings comes from a variety of sources, including common objects and materials, architecture, machinery, and shapes, lines and shadows seen throughout our everyday experiences. The “less is more” theme is central to many of the drawings, as is the idea of magnifying small portions of larger patterns. Curious is intended to encourage the mind to think of different explanations for what it sees. Has the circle fallen out of the triangular object, or is it heading to join it? What would the objects look like if they were united?
This piece is part of a group of drawings that are intended to encourage viewers to think of different possibilities for what they see. While Curious is clearly not representational, it can lead to descriptions of physical objects, or at the very least thoughts about the interaction of different shapes.
Along with the colored pencils, only a ruler and a circle template are used to create my drawings. No computer or computer software is used during any part of the drawing process, and no color enhancement tools are employed. Each drawing is lightly brushed to increase consistency of color and, if desired, blend different colors. A fixative is then sprayed onto the drawings to provide the desired finish. Although different drawings may touch on or incorporate similar themes, each drawing is entirely unique.
