Sketches from the David Seymour Chim and Louise Nevelson exhibits at the De Young. Seeing Nevelson's sculpture up close is pretty serious. Her whole asthetic kind of catches you off guard. There's a tragic beauty to most of the pieces, and you're hit with a clear sense of the history she was trying to portray. The white towers in this first image took my breath away.







 The rest are scatter-sketches from various rooms. Some from the glasswork exhibit, the abstract paintings, and different types of sculpture.

love the last one especially. the variation in red/orange and yellow gives it this molten lava feel, like there's something bubbling underneath. glad you posted
