This Blog is about Verena Baumann's drawings and illustrations.
Kimono awakes from her self-absorption to realize that she is completely and most pleasantly intoxicated. What a great act of vulnerable joy exudes from this vibrant and courageous drawing.
On a second look, I now see Kimono bewildered. The debris from her broken day dream floats in the air. The darkest brown lines playfully enliven the sculptural quality of this delightfully complex figure. The landscape-like shading makes her robe into an enriching and nurturing presence. Again, it is difficult to look away and stop enjoying the pleasure of this creation. Oh Kimono! How our hearts go out to you.
Thank you Nathaniel for first and second look, illuminating the drawing with your rich world of feelings and thoughts
