Tara Geer, The Frayed Sock
I really love Tara Geer's drawings.
I think maybe more than that I love her refreshing artist statement:
"I think the most important part of drawing is seeing: The more I look around me, the more the world opens up as if under a magnifying lens-- the spoon in the cereal bowl and the floating bits of cereal lose their distinction...My sketches from the world around me are love letters to looking, but wordless ones."
Read the whole thing here on her website.
And see her work in a group drawing show at the Macy Gallery @ Columbia through November 4th. And let me know how it is because I'm not going to make it to NY until the next weekend.
