The Green Wall 2014

Irene Svotelis Drawings

December 5 - 27, 2014

December 14, 2014 from 1:30-3:30PM

Irene Svotelis is direct in her subtle rendering of the innate qualities of everyday items of clothing in these large scale drawings. She has chosen to make drawing an art form rather than a preparative study.

Svotelis says, “Although I enjoy drawing clothing for its own sake, I think of it primarily as a vehicle for studies in composition. It’s interesting to see what happens when the hard, symmetrical elements of the coat stand and hanger are combined with a soft, organic item of clothing, subject to gravity and lighting.”

Reading Eagle critic, Ron Schira, has said, “This is not a statement on fashion but a thoughtful dissertation on normal items.. these pieces remain resolute, ascetic and unapologetic as much as they are elegant and accomplished in their approach.”
