Passion, Contemporary and Humanistic Artists Association (CHAA), Jan. 8 – Feb. 16, 2019, Merced Multicultural Arts Center, Merced, CA. Pencil Passion? Click here for further details: https://portfoliolongo.com/2019/01/05/princess-pencil-passion/
The Princess No. 2 School Pencil by Eberhard Faber has enchanted me for several decades; and, and I’ve tried to express this enchantment over time in traditional and digital ways. I love the shape, colors, and feel of this simple and elegant artifact, which has been instrumental in the expression of so many ideas, simple and complex. I’m moved by the unmistakable ways in which pencils sacrifice themselves physically in fulfillment of their instrumental, expressive mission; their erasers are often the first to go! Pencilitis and Milonga No. 2, both rendered freehand on an iPad, highlight in different ways the ordinary and extraordinary nature of this useful artifact.
