Over at Hi-Fructose, we spotted the work of Jane Radstrom, an Austin-based painter, and fell in love. Radstrom’s drawings capture the figure in two poses, in a way that suggests both movement and duality. Here’s the artist herself on her intentions:
Recently, I have been inspired by photographic effects, specifically the manipulation of exposure to create images that look ‘real’, but contain more than a single still image. In choosing poses, I focus on nuances of body language and expression. It is important to me that the girls are presented realistically, showing unidealized beauty and what I think of as a modern sense of confidence in candid moments, I hope that when you stand in front of a piece you can feel the presence of the person depicted.
