Fragmented Figure Drawing: The First

Posted in Art, Drawing with tags , , , , , , , on April 2, 2010 by katievautour

This is one in a series that happened to come about. I don’t want to get into what it’s about too much, possibly because I can’t articulate it fully. It’s a series of fragmented, headless, wounded women in a mesh of materials, as you can see for yourself because you are perfectly competent viewers.

I’m interested in hearing interpretations of this, as well as the rest which I will post in the near future.

Despite what the title says, this is in fact the latest drawing of the series. It’s only the first I posted. Confused? Me too.

36″ x 24″. Charcoal, acrylic, paper, roof tile, ink and chalk…maybe other things…on chipboard.


Expressive Portrait of Man

Expressive Portrait

Sorry I haven’t posted anything for the past few days; I’ve been busy working trying to make money because making money is something which evades artists.

Anyway, this is a portrait I did of a friend of mine. I ended up donating it to a politician in order to bribe him for my summer job (it may not be quite that blatant, but it’s expected that I produce something over the summer to give to him in return for his funding my job). It’s really ironic that this piece is now hanging in a politician’s office because this friend of mine is the most paranoid person I know. He doesn’t trust the government whatsoever. I think he’s a bit of an anarchist.

But the politician really liked it. He also thought the guy in the painting was a girl.

Oh well, at least everyone is getting along.

32″ x 24″. House paint, oil, acrylic, charcoal and ink on Masonite.
