TEXTURE: Single Subject

Jessica Baumann
Georgia Bourdens

Myranda Gradney
Yesterday began with a discussion of the different types of textures (actual, simulated, etc). Each student chose a single object to draw in the medium of their choice. Jessica's drawing is a monumental rendering of a magnolia pod. The tree line and low horizon make the form appear larger than life. The overall form of the pod exhibits volume with a dark to light gradation as well as the individual seed pockets. Georgia's drawing illustrates the flowing rhythm of the husk. Instead of drawing every kernel, she has omitted areas which suggest light and allow for the viewer to fill in the blanks. This activates the viewer's attention by making the object more visually interesting. Lastly, Myranda has employed a more expressive and exploratory approach. Her investigation lies within the object and texture itself as well as use of materials.
