Cross-hatching Modeling is a term that drawing borrows from sculpture to signify any graphic strategy that develops the appearance of the third dimension. Varying line width and weight, exploring tonal contrasts, cast shadows, linear cross-sections, and atmospheric perspective are some of the ways that the draughtsman responds to the visual phenomena of the three-dimensional world. Building on the investigations of line in the early weeks of the semester, we move on to a juncture where the boundary between this most abstract of elements begins to blur into another element – value, or tone – in all of its orchestral richness. Hong Chun Zhang: Hairy Art 30 Jul Click to enlarge Chinese artist Hong Chun Zhang, now living and working in Kansas, has found a balance between her Chinese and American artistic educations and cultures. Her painting and drawing foundation from China was very rigorous, but her content choices are now less restricted due to her US exposure. Much of her work revolves around hair, something she identifies with, and characterizes her to some degree through her own long hair, in addition to being something Zhang finds both beautiful and at times repulsive. She has charcoal drawings on larger-than-life scrolls to emphasize the length, and very realistic oil paintings on the subject matter as well.
Artist Uses Dance Movements To Create Stunning Charcoal Drawings EmailEmail New Orleans-based contemporary performance artist Heather Hansen’s work is the perfect union of dance and drawing. Her whole body moves in light and fluid dance-like motions and, just with little pieces of charcoal, she draws stunning one-of-a-kind symmetrical patterns and abstract forms on large sheets of paper. The resulting drawings are beautiful, resembling the perfect geometrical forms we see in nature, but the creation process is what moves us the most.

Pre-Nostalgic premiered as a featured exhibition in Boundary Crossings, An Institute in Contemporary Animated Arts held in Portland, OR 2011. at the boundaries between contemporary art, photography and fashion » Charcoal Drawings by Anouk Griffioen Anouk Griffioen is a Dutch artist whose charcoal drawings bridge the worlds of fashion photography and art. In a way she brings together the best of both worlds, maintaining a level of detail that respects the real subject, but with an overall aesthetic that seems to bring across emotion more powerfully than a photograph would. From certain angles it seems that the subject of the portrait is a carrier of the artists own personality – almost a self portrait within an alternate vehicle. Her portraits focus on the model’s form and expressions, and the textures and shapes formed by the clothing take an important role in the mood and composition. Ironically, at one point in her career she decided to reduce the fashion component in her drawings in order to gain wider acceptance within the art world. She found that the result was a surprising increase in the role of fashion in her work.

His perspective box, 'A Peepshow', is the best surviving example of this aspect of his art. His preoccupation with perspective may have been stimulated by his contact with Carel Fabritius when they were both students of Rembrandt in Amsterdam. Hoogstraten was a native of Dordrecht, where he was first trained by his father. He moved to Amsterdam shortly after his father's death in December 1640 and received further training in the studio of Rembrandt, at the time when Carel Fabritius was also there. His early works show the influence of Rembrandt.
View of an Interior, or The Slippers (traditional title, given in the 19th century) From 1839-42 to 1877-83, this painting bore Pieter de Hooch's monogram with the not unlikely date of 1658. Contemporary with the early work of de Hooch and Vermeer, it was formerly attributed to each but is quite distinct from the latter's experiments. Alluding - as does the Ter Borch-inspired picture in the background - to the vain and gallant pastimes of the absent mistress of the house, this is a subtly moralistic piece, a fascinating exercise in perspective, and a painting of poetic calm. Daniel Gordon - Still Lifes, Portraits and Parts For his series Still Lifes, Portraits and Parts, Daniel Gordon first created three-dimensional sculptures—made from collages of printed digital imagery borrowed from magazines and the Internet—and then photographed them with a 4 x 5 view camera. The resulting images are interesting examples of appropriation art in that the materials and images are culled from other sources and re-used, while the subjects and compositions reference Modernist masters like Picasso, Dalí, Matisse, and Cézanne. “I’m inspired by cooking and food, Matisse, and being in the ocean, among other things,” the artist Daniel Gordon says. “I begin with an idea of something I’d like to make, search for images online, print them, and then construct a three dimensional tableau that is then lit and photographed with a large format camera,” he explains. Daniel Gordon uses photography to create images that toy with notions of artifice and authenticity.

I create and kiln fire paper clay sculptures, and carve compressed paper sculptures. My ceramic paperclay work is an attempt to illustrate this on-going interest in the organisation of the arts and crafts, and society.
