cascading drawings

I tend to find my subject matter instead of creating it. These drawings bring together and connect images found in magazines. The juxtapositions are unlikely, but believable at the same time since they actually do exist together.

I’m still exploring this trend, but it is important to these drawings that they cascade down the page. Using implied gravity to create interesting balance and make the images “hang” from one another.

Some of the drawings use images from one single magazine, which adds another element/reference point. With a title like “Vogue: March 2002” it marks a time and certain type of culture (i.e. fashion, art, news). As time goes on, the piece becomes further removed, layers of nostalgia are applied. It’s constantly changing. I’m still not sure how important this is to the pieces. Worth considering either way…
