Marks make the men

Interesting mark making with flowing, repetitive lines across the picture plane...the motion of the leaves moving the eye diagonally and up, red cross hatching carrying the eye up and over to the electrical pole, the red lines moving down through the walk way into the lower right hand corner...your eye connects to the lower left hand corner, up the tree and all over again...The viewer sees the entire picture plane in a great use of space and movement...

Visually we group the reds, the verticals and the yellows...similar sizes, similar shapes and colors, attaching together optically and conceptually...the marks make an "x" through the picture plane...Andrew Schoultz is an excellent draftsperson...using layered and percise marks to create an exciting world in motion.
