Thrilled to take part of this remarkable silverpoint exhibition, curated by my girl Lauren Amalia Redding. Any folks on the east coast should definitely make time to see this gem (and post photos online for us newly minted California girls!):
"In an age of ever-increasing automation, many artists are exploring this complex and challenging medium which was often employed by masters such as Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt. This exhibition presents a survey of silverpoint drawings made by a diverse array of representational artists. Some artists use the medium exclusively, some occasionally, and some experimentally. All are united by a strong commitment to skill and draughtsmanship, yet some employ silverpoint unconventionally: amongst figurative drawings, there are cut-paper pieces, antique lockets, cloudscapes, and the chronicling of Latino and Middle Eastern cultural experiences."
