The Extending Eye
Albatross Gallery, Portland, Oregon, November 2015
The Extending Eye is a series of 20 small portraits drawn in (mostly) bright colored pencil, wax pastel and gouache colors on black gessoed paper. The individuals and pairings here range in aspect from sinister to dignified to ridiculous; their titles suggest their trades, honorifics, geographic locations as well as more direct descriptions; they represent a mishmash of time periods and styles of dress. Together, they might form a dramatis personae from a centuryspanning scifi comic book that I will think about but never write.
