ABOUT THE SERIES

ABOUT THE SERIES

This is a from series of blind contours* when I was transitioning from a series of abstract paintings, to what would be video / performance, figurative work. All I knew at the time was that I was fascinated by the figure again, but wanted to look and draw in a way that was different, that got past the visual assumptions ingrained in my hands and the way I am used to seeing.

*Blind contours are a method in which the artist draws in a continuous line while only looking at the subject, not at the page.

ABOUT THIS WORK

Because this was a long blind contour, there are areas where I attempted to retrace my line, but ended up making multiples of the same face and figure. I thought the complexity of lines was a bit overwhelming, so I colored in some sections to provide some guidance.
