This Blog is about Verena Baumann's drawings and illustrations.
Hello Verena, I particularly love the bottom three drawings! They have a magical sense of line as depiction and line as pure art. So many evocative feelings are stirred by the profound quality of these charcoal images. Simultaneously rough and casual, simple and energized, these poetically accurate drawings touch that uncanny balance where the material of expression is so in itself beautiful and yet the image they create is also so poignant and real. This balance brings forth and celebrates our human mystery, our depth of emotion and our not knowing. It is extraordinary how many feelings you share with us with these little squiggles of line and rubbed shading. I cannot say enough about their profound beauty or stop looking at them for the joy and feeling they provoke is so deeply nourishing. Thank you again and again.
