ART Habens Art Review - Page 196

ART Habens Doria Sharra The formalistic issues of drawing and painting are important to me, and I find them inseparable from other aspects of the artistic research I set out to do. I build my compositions according the narrative I`m dealing with, and I employ the tonal composition - the contrast, the placement of the lights and the darks, etc. to serve the way in which I want to deal with the subject matter. I usually choose my material acoording to the conceptual framework of the series I`m working on. In my previous project Your KLI is Wonderful! for example, I was exploring questions related to desire and to the act of collecting and therefore I chose to use sharpened charcoal on papaer, that can give a very sensual and carnal effect.
