This Blog is about Verena Baumann's drawings and illustrations.
"Wrapping" takes me back to some of your earlier portraits, such as "A Blind Woman's Eye", "Things" and especially "Forest". The reminder of them is how full this portrait feels through your use of the dense coloring and the use of space. It feels like the page is barely able to contain the drawing, as if she will burst off of the page and into life.
Oh, dark spirit, wrap around me. I am strong enough. I can live.
