A sampler of 4x4 drawing details. Drawings by Stella Untalan
exhibition
February 7 February 29, 2020

600 drawings 4x4 2019, is the result of a drawing project — making at least one drawing each day. This project involved the use of four-inch squares of paper of various weights, colors, and surfaces. I found that many small pieces could be cut out of remnants of paper in my studio. 

Year long projects help expand my vocabulary, they create new phrases and expletives. Join me to see the hundreds of drawings I made in this series.
