Charcoal and Pastel Pencil on Plywood
67 x 20 in
“Karley” is a charcoal and pastel pencil drawing on plywood from Denise Stewart-Sanabria’s award-winning series of free-standing representational figures. Inspired by her observations of guests at art receptions, Sanabria depicts contemporary people and explores how they interact and inhabit a given space. This life-sized drawing depicts a woman from behind wearing a short dress, black tights, and heels. Her dress is tied with a large bow in the back, and a butterfly tattoo stretches across her shoulder blades.
