Item Details

David Blaisdell, 2015
Colored pencil on illustration board
Signed “AJH” to lower left
Titled to lower left
Titled, dated, and inscribed to board verso

From the studios of Visionaries + Voices – a non-profit organization that provides exhibition opportunities, studio space, supplies, and support to more than 125 visual artists with disabilities.

A colored pencil drawing on illustration board titled David Blaisdell by Cincinnati-based artist Andrew Hostick (20th/21st century), created in 2015. This work features an abstract bust portrait portrayed with thick black outlines and gestural delineations against a textural orange ground. Titled and signed ‘AJK’ to the lower left, the work is also titled and dated to the board verso. It is not mounted and remains unframed.

Andrew Hostick works from observation to paraphrase advertisements from various art magazines. Endorsements in Art in America and Artforum unfettered by content allow Hostick to focus on the image’s organization of objects and hue, allowing him to, via emulation, practice sophisticated use of composition and color theory. Choosing to work only with colored pencil on mat board, heavy-handed mark-making inscribes the surface and builds up a velvety sheen in his work. He works and reworks the entire surface (even white on white) with nonpareil intensity.


- minor wear along edges and corners of borns including some curling and fraying.
