Primarily based on the Central Coast of California, artist and writer Anna Fusco spends most of her time crafting, reading, drawing, and browsing, with a every day meditation practice mixed in. Reflecting her a variety of pursuits, Fusco’s quirky coloration pencil drawings perform with factors of fantasy and narrative, even though fusing with each other bits of her previous and “whatever I can not prevent fantasizing about on the horizon.” These drawings have been created in anticipation of a nomadic cross-nation travel, her fourth in modern years, capturing what she describes as “the pleasure of observing the mountains and desert all over again, of getting somewhere else to reside whilst confronting the unease of a fragmented way of living.”
“The drawings are an amalgamation of personalized diary mixed with the conjurings of a shifting narrator—still frames in an imaginary American West established in the gentle textures of my desired medium, colour pencil,” she points out. “I don’t like doing the job with messy, globby, soaked matters. I get a great deal of pleasure from the loaded pigments and flatness the pencils give. I adore to publish by hand—journaling informs my work—and the coloration pencils never come to feel considerably away from that probability. The pencil serves a relaxed function of spontaneity most brilliantly. At any second I can prevent scribbling and start producing.”
