a drawing exercise to exorcise the surrounding chaos
These drawings began as quick gestural studies after the 2016 elections. I saw parallels in the societal responses to women's issues that reminded me of the 1960s and I began drawing "Nasty Women" - Go Go Girls. The drawings conveyed attitude and defiance through the unity of the figures and the gestural lines. The act of drawing, the movement itself, became cathartic and energized me to create larger mixed media pieces.
