"Moving Man III"
Char- kole Pastel by Cathy Z Sawdey
Oil by Marian Gliese
| Cathy Z Sawdey
Cathy works with Char-kole pastels on paper, making marks with the energy she sees expended in the twisting and arching figures she draws. "I like to feel the muscular strength and reach into their three dimensional space, matching my drawing to the transient movement of the human form. I return to the human figure continually because I understand it in terms of a form I inhabit. Moving the Char-kole allows me to pour my own living thought onto paper, pushing and pressing lines to capture the movement of tautly strained muscles and shifting weight. After the model leaves, I want my drawings to retain this life."
| Marian Gliese
Marian isolates and simplifies natural forms to emphasize their artistic value and maximizes the space on her canvases to create bold and closeup compositions that force the viewer to see the painting as a whole. "I see art everywhere in nature and my work is an interpretation of the way I see nature combined with the inspiration of the works of other artists and pop culture. The style of my artwork is feminine but strong and direct."
