Young Canadian artist Winnie Truong brings a ton of virility and grace to her colored pencil drawings and expertly brainstormed sketches (below). The details on her works reveal commendable precision with line drawing and ingenuity with color. Used cautiously, bright reds, greens and blues create the vibrancy and texture of her corporal pics, which range from the regal to the monstrous, without however pulling any punches on the quality control.
(Ornament and Correction)
There is real ingenuity here in the staging of Truong’s pieces, and this is showcased just as well in these selections from her sketchbook. I’m really looking forward to seeing what this artist will come up with next, and for that, her website and blog are the best place to keep tabs. Rad stuff, Winnie Truong.
