There's a wonderful comfortableness to the Line & Color Drawings by Stacy Elaine Dacheux. For me it was all-too-familiar artistic territory. So many of my own works included words that I'd colored-in some of the closed spaces. These drawings represent the basic building blocks of almost all painting; the sketching and then the painting-in of those spaces as the subject matter gets fleshed out.
And there's also something very art-historical about these pieces. The more you look at them, the more artists come to mind. There's such a calm, rational beauty here that evokes many a well known master. As intriguing as the shapes are, some of her gestures are reminiscent of letters and we find ourselves searching for words.
