I love these charcoal drawings by Australian artist, Louisa Jenkinson. Of this work, she says, ‘Through the medium of large scale drawing, my work investigates the interstices of the urban environment where one finds a cornucopia of brief human interactions, prolonged dramatic interpersonal relationship sagas and momentary lapses of normality. These prolific and profound moments are then deconstructed, rebuilt and then released into the wild’. She is represented by Dianne Tanzer Gallery in Melbourne.
