James Esber, This is Not a Portrait @ The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum

Great news today! I am excited to announce that I have been selected to produce a drawing for the

James Esber,
This is Not a Portrait Exhibition.

In conjunction with Artspace: New Haven the drawings will be shown at The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, in Ridgefield, CT.

For the last several years, Esber has been collaborating with broad, diverse audiences to generate depictions of public figures, most notably Osama Bin Laden. The resulting ink and brush drawings are similar in that all the heads are exactly the same size and all contain the same number of lines.

Here is a link to a NY Times review of the on-going project.

This is waaaaaay cool. Even made the NY Times.

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
