A great book about Drawing by Claire Gilman and Roger Malbert called " Drawing in the present tense explores the vitality of contemporary drawing by looking at its diversity across seventy-four artists from around the world. Wonderful color photos from artists all over the world. Each artist holds drawing as a central part of their practice. These artists have something to say and they are saying it in dynamic drawings.
Here are some my favorites by an artist named Torkwase Dyson from New York. Dyson engages with the black communities on questions of environmental justice. She uses her brushes with delicate precision and epitomizes what the artist refers to as black compositional thought.
