I found a new artist I like. Derek Overfield draws and paints the figure in limited slightly abstract way. I really like his work because of the editing choices he makes in relation to drawing the figure. I like that he uses line to inform the viewer of the figure without overloading the details. The figures have a strong sense of anatomy and gesture. He then adds color and more detail to specific areas on the figure which creates the narrative of the piece. The figures are anonymous but not necessarily objective which is something I'm looking to accomplish within my work.
