January 26th-March 15th 2014. Located at 334 Grand Ave, Brooklyn, NY. Drawn Truly brings together identities and tender artists’ thoughts through figurative rendering, abstraction and the imagined reflecting contemporary cultures.
|Alphonso Dunn, Itty Bitty Black Box, charcoal, Crayon, pastel, pencil, acrylic, 25" x 37" 2013|
Through drawing, Alphonso Dunn, Jamaican born with a recent MFA from the New York Academy, reflects the inner workings of people and their interactions. Paraphernalia of Perception examines the contrasts between abstraction and representation, reflecting adult themes with childlike drawing punctuating the compositions. These drawings become letters asking questions about the society we have created.
|Vernando Reuben, untitled, mixed media on paper, 24"x 38"|
The layered mixed media drawings of Vernando Reuben examine the multiple facets of identity through the creation and destruction of mask like-forms, collage, and mark making. His portraits are metaphors for post-millennium cultural integration that combine spiritual and altruistic sensibilities.
|Al Burts, Nefertiti, The Beautiful One, Ballpoint Pen on Wood, 26" x 38" 2013|
|ruby onyinyechi amanze, ada, Pencil, fluorescent marker | 50 x 31.5 inches 2013|
Each of these drawings are Drawn Truly and speaking a societal truth about the artist and community. Though intimate rendering and explicit mark making each artist is bringing a new perspective to drawing, combining the personal with the world at large.
