ART - The Drawings of Ashley Oubré
One of my favorite artists will be opening a solo show on January 10th at the Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami. Ms. Ashley Oubré is a self-taught visual artist producing extraordinarily realistic drawings using pencils, inks and graphite powder. Her remarkable techniques, and a somewhat singular focus on monotone/grayscale imagery, produces drawings that many would assume were simply well-shot black and white photos. I’m mesmerized by her abilities, and drawn into her work by the peculiar objects and individuals she chooses as her subjects. A beautiful melancholy flows from her pieces, and I’m somewhat addicted to the narratives that play out in my spirit. Although I’m unable to purchase any of her pieces yet, I look forward to adding her to my collection in the near future.
If you happen to be in Miami in the coming year, her exhibit of new works will be on display through January 31, 2015.
