Old Women, 2007
The pencil drawings of Old Women originated with the ongoing photo-documentary project Closer than they Appear. In the communities that the artist was documenting, there were often elderly Chinese women walking the streets and parks. The drawings focus on the individual personalities, gestural idiosyncrasies, dress and accoutrement of these elderly women.
This work was often exhibited in conjunction with the photograph, Portrait of the Artist’s Grandmother from 2006.
