Drawing Marathon: Fabric to Space

  • Drawing Marathon
    A five week intensive drawing studio that met five times a week for 12 hours and included a two week independent study project. This study project investigated chiaroscuro through observing draping fabrics, which were then transformed into imaginative spaces, using the lighting situations apparent. Within those last two weeks, over 40 fabric studies were made, and about 20 were transformed into imaginary spaces. 

  • Initial studies, looking at famous sculpture and paintings and transforming zoomed in parts into imagined cities and spaces.
