Day 92: Alejandro Aguilar

The human form is a powerful image that has fascinated both artists and viewers throughout history. Not only is it a powerful image through form and subject matter but as a study for drawing it teaches line and rendering through its series of shapes and forms- forms that are organic, simple, and complex.

My current body of work entails the human form expressed through different mediums. Drawing is the foundation for most artists and I use drawing as a basis for exploring new mediums. This process both introduces me to a new medium and provides an understanding on how I can utilize that medium for future projects whether expressive or conceptual.

From moving a stylus across a digital canvas to embroidering with a needle: my pieces posted here demonstrate that process transparently.
