A Cut Above

I have always loved wood cuts and scratchboard images. Kent Barton brings this particular style to new heights. His work is beautiful, with every line and cut artfully placed. Kent works on a grand scale, and his art is often found in architectural placements, as depicted in the image above. I could stare for hours!

Hat tip to lines and colors.

Stark and stunning in detail, Melissa B. Tubbs shows a firm grasp on the barrel of her pen. She is based in Alabama and specializes in light on architectural forms. Several of her pieces are shown on her blog. Her work is so lovely, it will take your breath away.

I have a soft spot in my pencil box for figure drawing – my favorite college-level art course. The DSC Gallery of Canadian Drawing Masters exhibits a number of gorgeous works by Canadian artists, including the beauty above by Yevgeniya Savosta entitled “Lydia.” Hit the jump and enjoy the beauty.

Drawing On Modernism

Extraordinary in its breadth, if not depth, MoMA is currently showing selections from the largest gift of drawings ever received, 2,500 drawings by 650 artists from The Judith Rothschild Foundation. The exhibition, “Compass In Hand”, includes¬† 354 works by 177 artists of those artists, the largest show of drawings MoMA has ever stood. You can read the NYT review here and, while it is not altogether favorable, I myself loved the slides. Never mind the NYT – here’s hoping I can get to the City before the show ends on July 27, 2009.
