Clio Newton Charcoal Portraits – Take 2

Towering Charcoal Portraits of Women by Clio Newton

by Christopher Jobson on August 28, 2017 – Colossal

 

Swiss artist Clio Newton has been hard at work on a series of larger-than-life portraits of women portrayed entirely with compressed charcoal. The towering drawings can reach nearly 8 feet tall and capture near photographic detail of her subject’s faces, hair, and bodies. Several of the new portraits will be on view in an upcoming show at Benjamin Eck Galerie in Munich titled ‘Realism‘ that opens September 14, 2017. You can read an interview with Newton on Quiet Lunch and see more of her recent work and studio photos on Instagram. (via Supersonic Electronic, Gaks Designs)

Delight for Kids and Grandkids

Bethany Kerr of Creative Artworks offers new prints of her original artwork that will delight the young and the young-at-heart.  Many adjectives apply: creative, clever, humorous, whimsical – but they’re just downright delightful. I almost wish I still worked outside my home so that I could display them on my office wall.

I also wish I had grandkids so I could give them a new print or two each occasion to light up the walls of their bedrooms!

I’m so pleased to show you four more clever drawings by Bethany Kerr on Creative Artworks.  I wish I had a young child so I could fill his or her room with these!  If I were still an elementary school teacher, I would love decorating our room.  If I were lucky enough to have grandchildren, I would send some for each occasion until they had the whole collection. If I still had an office outside my home, I would feature a grouping – assuming I could choose a ‘few’ favorites – on a wall so that I could lighten my load a bit from time to time.

Click on any of these links to purchase. From there you can click on “All Posters – Prints by Bethany Kerr” to see the whole collection!
