I returned to the Gonzaga campus last month at the close of the Drawn to the Wall exhibition to join with my fellow artists in painting over our drawings. However, they still exist in this 3 minute video, Drawn to the Wall V, which includes the artists at work on their drawings, the opening reception, and wall restoration.
Since this exhibit, I’ve continued to work with silverpoint. It’s a nice change from charcoal: using a silver wire the thickness of a paper clip rather than a fist-size chunk of messy charcoal–spending hours building up darkness and tiny details with line, instead of the gray values made with the smear of a hand across charcoal on paper.
You can see the final image, statement, and details of the drawing Two Phobias at my website blackthumbart.com, and read an essay by Sheri Boggs in the Jundt Art Museum catalog.
Thanks to photographer Christian Woods and videographer Matt Green for their documentation of the Drawn to the Wall V Exhibit.
