DRAWINGS by Erol Gündüz

“Stop Playing”

February 17 through March 4, 2014

Drawn on an iPad. Fine prints on matte paper @ The Wall.

As far as I can remember, I have always been interested in drawing. While at times I struggle with it, drawing is interwoven with my practice as a sculptor. For me, art making is language and drawing is the most direct and intimate method of visual communication. There is always something of one’s self in a drawing; you really cannot hide behind anything. As an educator, I understand how difficult drawing can be for students as well as professionals. In a sense, my drawings are about immediacy and unapologetic communication. By playing with mark making, I see the process as a form of visual babbling. Through repetition and play, visual relationships come into focus. This is the visual fuel behind much of my sculpture. Thanks for taking the time to view them.
