1-60, Oil Pastel On Paper




1-60 is a series of 60 original drawings on 9"x12" paper using primarily oil pastels and pen.  Each piece is numbered and signed on the back.

These shapes and lines are an extreme simplification of certain states of being.  Factors like color, pattern and texture, composition, and the presence of simple lines (or even a face) affect the overall aesthetic of each piece.  Through this series I have defined how I see many different situations.  Some of my drawings imply shrinking spaces, some show empowered bold colors, some contrast the personalities of two very different colors or two minimally different colors.  Using basic artistic principles, I attempt to express how I view each player’s role in a given situation, and how emotions affect each different individual.
