Notice. Drawings by Craig Hawkins.
23 August 2009 Leave a comment
A few months back I added Craig Hawkins’ website to my brief and, admittedly, somewhat unconsidered list of links in the proverbial sidebar. I really like his work, and noticed this morning he posted a number of new drawings to his website.
The series is titled “Notice,” and it made me think of my continual harping on intentional observation. The above charcoal drawing is titled Donna. Hawkins says of the series:
What do people ignore? Why? What do they notice? Why?
Matthew 13 seems to reference this. It’s interesting to read why Jesus chose to speak in parables.
“Art is a lie that helps us to realize the truth.”
– Pablo Picasso
The Notice series is currently installed at the Mason Murer gallery in Atlanta.
Also added to the proverbial sidebar this week was a link to my good friend Joel Armstrong’s new website. Joel creates drawings and installations using wire and found objects.
