In case you missed “Greetings from Las Vegas” at Gateway early December 2013. I posting some images of my room. I made bedsheets out of recycled plastic bags that I ironed the bags together and painted love letters on them. The television had hand-drawn animation playing on the old television.
THE EXERCISE: The core
Work studies and experiments, Model: Heather and Husband.
The life work is based on live models, who are often in movement rather than a stationary pose. These drawings are the exercises or experiments to my later work. This work helps me problem-solve my use of loose materials such as graphite, dyes and paints. These exercises are the core, or foundation, of my work. Without my studies from life, emotion and movement I wouldn’t have a finished piece.
I made a digital book of my life drawing work from 2000 and early to 2009.
View Book Here. I learned how I draw by figure drawing.
I have a huge garage closet of the large scale drawings, which is getting harder and harder to store.
