Charcoal and Pastel Pencil on Plywood
72 x 22 in
“Aaron” is a charcoal drawing on plywood from Denise Stewart-Sanabria’s award-winning series of free-standing representational figures. Inspired by her observations of guests at art receptions, Sanabria depicts contemporary people and explores how they interact and inhabit a given space. This life-sized drawing depicts a young man with curly hair and glasses wearing a button-down shirt, baggy jeans, and sneakers. He has a contemplative look as he stands with one arm crossed over his torso and his opposite hand resting under his chin.
