Here I am again going back to basics. I was recently inspired by the skill of the artist Jose Alberto Marchi. His preciseness of the human form in oils. His works look like photographs for his recent exhibition in Latin American Masters at Bergamot Station, but they are not. He demonstrates his skill, he plays with the idea of negatives and if you look closely you can see the change of gender or the absence of a party. You cannot see his brushstrokes. Oh, to reach that skill level. They are an adaptation of a series of photographs by T. Eakins, in oils.
So here I am instead starting back again with a pen, this time a graphic one. Doesn’t matter what the tool, the fact that I am actually doing it is the challenge. If I improve so much the better. Let’s just start back with just being here. Chance Gardner gets it. Just be.
