Ok after getting terribly confused about passwords and logins etc. and setting up a completely new blog i'm finally here and ready to post. I came across Aurel Schmidt this moring and was totally blown away by her work, I love the detail and work thats gone into each piece but also the way she can make very simplified versions of he pieces equally as effective. This is what it says about her on the supertouch blog:
"Emerging from the East Village art scene with a style as distinct as her name, Schmidt is the rare artist with profound imagination, sheer technical power and a fantastic sense of humor who is able to switch between hyper-detailed obsessive/compulsive technical rendering and fun, simple, Pop-inspired imagery with ease. Her medium of choice remains pencil & crayon on paper but the incredible detail and complex tones of her tightly executed imagery give her fantastic tableaux’s the depth of oil paintings."
You can see more of her work on the supertouch blog. More posts soon!
