Blue Collection #1: Finding her way home
Graphite and white charcoal on toned paper
Drawing size: 16″ x 20″
This first drawing is from my solo show in 2019 and so has been beautifully framed with museum-grade plexiglass (light for shipping, hard to break!) and a classic black frame.
Titling figure drawings feels like such a delicate balance for me – I want to capture the poetry of the person without either overly dictating the meaning or revealing too much of that person’s private hopes, dreams and fears.
I typically get to know my models quite well and we often have intense conversations about deeply personal topics. This informs the art and adds richness and depth, but also makes it hard to title – I have been trusted with vulnerable parts of this person and I don’t want to turn around and exploit that for a cool title.
“Finding her way home” I think conveys just enough of a theme, while also leaving space for the viewer’s interpretation.
