Brenda Laoxana

Kannha Hemsouvanh
Value is used "subjectively" when the artist bases his or her decisions on intuition and the demands of the design. In other words, values are used to create volume, rhythm and psychological or dramatic impact. Brenda's drawing exhibits a strong rhythm directed by the subtle use of line wandering through and around the forms. This is complemented by the triangular and diagonal placement of similar values and textures that also help direct the "eye." Kannha's drawing is a very dynamic, moving and confrontational view of a portrait in turmoil. The combination of pointed and curvilinear forms creates a sense of movement and animation as if the facial features were liquid and fluid. His use of value propels the design while bringing volume and depth to the image.
