Being in the Woods Untalan Dennis and Mowat, Review

Being in the Woods unites Stella Untalan‘s ink drawings and Brian David Dennis‘ large cardboard construction titled, [bar], in a meta-magical art installation vibrating with the rhythms of the universe and nature. Minimalist drawings using walnut ink and a nib are serenely precise and flow with life energy. The repetition and hand/mind control pulses across the sheen of the paper like heart beats, the measure of time is palpable and flowing.

In the studio: February Commission

I've been working on a smaller drawing to test a process for my current commission. I've been in the studio for three days and made progress enough to visualize the much larger piece. The rhythm is working and the color patterns work. I can feel the ocean and its undulation.

Now it's time to think about mounting paper or not to make this drawing. The paper as substrate will make drawing on the surface a bit more fluid. I also want to make the marks a bit larger and absorbtion into paper will help the marks dry faster.

In the studio : framing

I have eight pieces in a private show coming up. I have two egyptian waters drawings, this is one a buffed up and ready to go. The exhibition is by invitation only.
