Drawing on paper, collage 16" x 20" - SOLD to a collector in Vermont
Dance Class is a drawing-collage I created a few years ago in response to a class assignment requiring multiple figures in a single composition. Since I had no models, I imagined and drew dancers in a mirrored studio. Before starting the drawing, I ripped up newsprint and glued it randomly on Bristol board to create a surface irregularity. I then drew the imagined figures in a box-like space (opened visually by the mirror) using graphite, color pencil and watercolor. My drawing of the dancers was kind of clunky, but I like the texture of this piece, its lack of sharp clarity and its sense of jumbled parts.
