Color pencils

12” x 5”


“Making color pencil drawings replaced painting for me fifteen years ago, but the processes are similar in that each drawing requires its own painterly invention to describe surfaces and to create effective illusions. My interests sometimes wander as I am lured away by the pleasures of irony: combining pop culture icons with facsimiles of traditional works of art, the prosaic and the precious. These drawings combine my knack for realism with my minimalist sensibilities.– Philip Carpenter, Atlanta
