Join artist Yve Holtzclaw discusses the way that their drawing, whether it happens with a pen, paint, or clay, forms new interpretations of the world around them. Yve will talk about how they find inspiration, narrative, and expression through their daily drawing practice, and how that practice connects to their body of work as whole.
This event will take place through Zoom as well as Facebook Live. Registering for the Zoom meeting guarantees the ability to ask the lecturer questions directly (in text or through video) as well as priority to have questions answered.
While admission is free, donations are encouraged during the show as all proceeds are split between the artist and ātac.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
"In quarantine, away from family and separated from friends, I have been meandering through images the way I wander through my neighborhood. I peer into houses, and into my phone, I imagine the lives of the people no longer around me. I do not know to press some steady meaning out of this past year, but I feel an urgency to be seen, and to see others as best I can. This work is imagining how we can love each other from far away. I juxtapose our sleepy heads, needy animals, and pajamas into this series of paintings, buildings and sewn landscapes. In this work, I am interested in the intersection tender, the lonely, and the fantastic."
"The bones of this work are a series of intersecting paintings and sculptures. The paintings are all based off of images collected from my friends, family, and a few strangers. The buildings are from my dreams and loosely connected to places I have called home this past year - their landscapes are made of stiffened, quilted fabric and their structure is of clay and watercolor. As one circles the buildings, they align with different landscapes and moods. When moving through the space, everything shifts but ultimately stays the same."
