Melissa Cooke Benson: Pieces of Me
Melissa Cooke Benson creates large scale powdered graphite drawings. Her work investigates the relationship between photography, performance and drawing in portraiture.
Cooke Benson’s drawings are made by dusting thin layers of graphite onto paper with a dry brush. The softness of the graphite provides a smooth surface that can be augmented by erasing in details and textures. No pencils are used in the work, allowing the surface to glow without the shine of heavy pencil marks. Illusion dissolves into brush work and the honesty of the material.
