Jean Gidich Fine Art.

Every living thing has a story. I’m interested in telling it with lines. My work is stripped of color and uses basic materials of ink and graphite. The marks are raw and active just like the subjects I choose. The implied texture and contrast of detailed strands alongside bold strokes define them. I draw on watercolor paper veneered to a wood surface. By doing this I can dig, blend and layer my lines. I find this process of large scale drawing exhilarating to create and how I can best translate what I see as a tangible thing
