Forgotten by So Youn Lee (Pasadena, CA)

Materials used: Pen and inkArtist’s statement:

This piece is a part of a series of drawings on the theme of “Abandonment”. I tried to visualize the forgotten emotions in memories and how they dissolve into the past leaving behind mere events. I tried to portray this through the girl in the piece by having her “dissolve” into the landscape as if becoming a part of it while she slowly becomes a lifeless being as well. My intent was to depict a delicate scene because the timid and forgotten emotions in my memories are extremely fragile yet pretty.


Measurement of Time Passing This Summer by Chris Lyons (Pittsford, NY)

Materials’ used: Adobe IllustratorArtist’s statement:

I love to draw flowers. I drew the lush peonies from my garden in June. After a crazy 8 weeks of life—summer flew by with a birth, a death, my kids off to college—I noticed that my still life had marked the time beautifully. Tangible evidence of time passed.
