Line/Form & Color

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.

.You'll find 10 larger examples of these works on her Website by clicking flora & fauna. These images are from the 14 examples she has on her Flickr page.
