This past week, Friday the 13th to be exact, the POVevolving Gallery in Los Angeles opened a new solo show by Derek Albeck. Entitled “Mysterious Strangers”, these new realistic graphite drawings continue his recent works which “depict the disparate, frenzied moments that are usually the domain of the casual snapshot. What makes his use of these images noteworthy, however, is the carefully selected grouping of images that, as a whole, mimic a loose narrative rooted in his own personal history and memories.” The show is now online to view, and the works look amazing. Derek is truly a master when it comes to drawing, and shows that a medium that gets less attention than painting can be very dynamic. Also om the website in an interview with Derek, so while your there to check out the art make sure to take a look at the interview as well.
