Untitled #14-03, 2003. Charcoal on mylar. 4.2' x 4.8'.
Hilary Brace's small drawings are infinitely evocative. They're made through a process of reductive erasure.
A deluge, c. 1517-1518. Black chalk.
I'm reminded of Leonardo da Vinci's deluge drawings...
Shade and Darkness - the Evening of the Deluge, 1843.
...as well as Joseph Mallord William Turner's paintings, a few of which were of the deluge.
Big Sea I, 1969. Graphite.
I'm also reminded of Vija Celmins' water drawings and prints.
