  • “There are multiple ideas going on within the practice. I feel like the drawing practice, and drawing in general, is the ground work for painting, the architecture of painting. And when you are bringing in color to a drawing, even pastel it’s such a thick, malleable substance that it really feels like painting. So I think my pastels could eventually develop into their own body of work.There’s a different element in this body of work, there’s the figurative reference and there is this geometric abstract reference. I could see myself going in those two directions. I have this painting that is more figurative and it comes out of a more Chicago Imagist School sensibility. The landscape element in this one could lead into a whole different direction, whereas the trans formation painting and the space that is completely held within the frame, self-contained light, self-contained form could be a whole new direction.”— Loie Hollowell
