An Hoang: Drawings
Curated by Hilary Schaffner
“My painting process often involves many layers of paint; wiping away, reacting to a mark, and destroying it, and allowing the painting to evolve and reveal itself in the studio. I recently figured out that this process is what I needed to do in the drawings; using a variety of media (watercolor, pencil, oil pastel, etc.) in layers, in order to achieve a similar feeling in the work. I tend to be more experimental in my drawings because there is not a sense of scarcity of material or time. The drawings are not templates for larger paintings, but they exist alongside the paintings and inform them as a back-and-forth conversation.”
