“Carried Interest” Drawings by Louise Despont
If you want to cast some anxiety around a classroom you need only say these words, “Get out your #2 pencil.”
For once, being #1 isn’t the end all be all. Pencils come in a wide variety of shades and hardness, about which only artists and draftsmen give a whit. That being said, when I look at the incredible detail and shading in artist Louise Despont’s drawings, I can respect that materials matter a great deal. Adding to the interest, her foundations are giant, antique, ledger pages. The work carries itself.
