Sara Horowitz - Gleditsia I
Sara’s lines are thin, but placed together they create a tangled energy that I was initially drawn to. From far away, the lines seem to carry different weights to portray shadowing and texture. However, at close glance I realized that the lines are equal weights and this shadowing/texturing occurs through strategic line hatching. Overall, the mood of the drawing is energetic on the verge of chaotic, portrayed through diagonal orientation of both the branches and the lines within them.
