Drawing (Spring 2013)

  • Skeleton Scroll: Create a composition using a skeleton drawn from observation. Place some sort of restriction on yourself for most of the process, then refine what you have drawn. Emphasize overlap and create a sense of receding space.
    24" X 15'
    Charcoal on paper, drawn mostly behind my back.

  • Orbit: Take a section of your skeleton scroll and imagine that you are looking at it from a new viewpoint. Emphasize overlap and create a sense of receding space.
    38" X 50"
    Charcoal on paper.

  • Triptych: Find a space that interests you and create three compositions that suggest movement through that space. Focus on line and perspective.

  • Pile drawing (midterm): Construct a model of a pile inspired by various piles that you have seen in the world. Work directly from your model to produce a drawing that suggests monumental scale.
    5' X 8'
    Drawing: Charcoal on paper, Model: foamcore, chipboard, sculpey, hot glue, and faux moss.
  • Construct (Final Series): Make a series of at least 30 drawings revolving around a central concept of your own making. The drawings needed to be based in observation. My series explored the psychological effects of disrupting familiar spaces. (See my portfolio for the full series.)
    28 drawings and two models, various sizes
    Charcoal, ink, and gesso on paper.
