Drawings 2010

With just enough pencil marks Steuart Bremner defines a situation that allows viewers to play with their complex human vision, interact with a little art history, and keep fit the intellectual tools to read perspective. The reward for the effort can happen while looking at the piece and come again when similar situations appear in the world.

During 2009 and 2010, he made these larger-than-a-sketch, clean pencil drawings on rag paper. Several of these ideas were drawn again, and refined further to 'just enough' pencil marks.

Some are drawn on an aluminum frame that Bremner constructed and covered with sanded gesso. The final product is unlike paper behind glass. It is an object with thickness and structure like a stretched canvas.
