Students Work, 2015-2017

TITLE: Students Work (Observational Drawings of Observers of Drawings)

YEAR: 2015-2017

MEDIUM: Vine Charcoal, Graphite, Paper

DIMENSIONS: 24″ x 18″

DESCRIPTION: Lately I’ve been watching a lot of things. Observing my students in a foundation drawing course that I teach at the community college, I’m beginning to see a bit more than usual. I sketched these quick (<1 hr) charcoal studies of my students whilst they were intensely engaged in the act of observational drawing. There is something to be witnessed in looking at those who are looking… a certain fragility in the glance. They look and draw while I look and draw this. Subject subject to subjection.
