Witness Louise Despont

Story by

I was shown the work of Louise Despont recently and I spent the next 45 minutes infatuated with her work. It feels as though I had come across undiscovered scriptures from another time, or better yet another world. Her work seems to dance between eerily beautiful obsessiveness and formulaic geometry. From afar her work seems meticulous and computer generated, however as you get closer you can see that the graphite from her pencil is far from perfect and the sketchiness and beautifully human nature comes clearly into focus. I have featured some of my favorites from Louise, however I encourage you to visit her site here, or go see her work live (showing at the end of November in New York City).
