Art of the Day: Thursday August 11, 2011


- by Wendy L. Gonick

This week's theme: Stems

When we see a flower, we focus on its bloom. We like flowers around us because of their beauty, their colour and fragrance. Flowers, however, do not stand on their own. Like so many things they are equipped with an infrastructure. The most visible part of that infrastructure is their stems. This week, EBSQ's Art of the Day showcases flowers and the stems that allow them to rise from the earth and into the air.

Art: Sentinels by Artist Wendy L. Gonick
This image is from a new body of work which I have dubbed “Surrealities.” Drawn forth from my imagination and executed with basic materials—bristol board, color pencil and ebony pencil—I work to achieve subtle marks and overlapping luminous colors as a backdrop for my dark ebony pencil line drawings. Soft undefined edges enhance the dream-like quality of these surreal landscapes.
