Katie Brookes lives and draws in London (doesn't that sound like the best thing ever?). She sent a bunch of her intricately drawn pieces to share. I was really taken with her detail & asked her to tell me about her work:
"I make drawings that involve extremes of narrative, physical being and extremes emotion in various sorts. I play with distorted forms and the grotesque, heaven to hell ratios, people never just going about their daily lives but pushed into uncomfortable circumstances. I rely on my drawings and use of different weighted lines to tell a story within an image. I try and make work that draws you into the image and whenever you go back to it, you find something new."
Mel Kadel's Arms Out opens at Merry Karnowsky from today til March 5, 2011. I love Mel's colors and sweet drawings. The patterns and combinations make me think of quilting. I'd love to see this show in person. The gallery should have full pics of the show up next week. These images are from Mel's site.
Take a look at all these new drawings from Philippe Constantinesco. Love the delicateness to his lines. So soft and purty. He also sent along a few of his photographs to share as well...
