Poetry BABXtyle

This post is a birthday present to Shir Shvadron, the man who taught me how to look, for which I am eternally grateful....

In the continuous effort to take you places, this time I take you frontrowcenter to a Babx concert,
I don't know much about him, except that his concert (with Frédéric Jean on drums and Julien Lefevre on cello) was exceptionally great, sweating, whispering, feeling, and reworking poems of Tom Waits, Budler (among others)

I mainly listened and drew (with really noisy markers ...)

Red&Blue


Redrum

Almost a one-liner

There's a drummer here somewhere...

Pianoman with a drummer in reverse



Behind enemy lines

Babx Threefold


Two drummers

And just so you get to see the real deal - voila:

From here and there (mainly here)

Yesterday I had a cleanup attack,
Here are some works (or plays) I found.

A drawing from a model session. I like the intensity of the face ines, and the dissolving of the shoulders into nothing.

Back of painting @ Scott's place
 This is a blurry photo of a photocopy of a drawing and a transparency to the next page of a chair.
After so many filters, is there still a chair there?
Shadow of a chair and its reflection at the Medici fountain
This is a leaflet to a dance I didn't attend, but I adore the art work
When the world was more naive, Israel was often described by Israelis as a woman.
This is a tribute to an Israeli author from way back then.

Another diptich (see above)
 From one of the funnest sessions, a rock singuitarist striking a chord.
Drawn with two acrilic-dipped fingers while dancing.
 That reminds me, I didn't submit new Metro drawings in ages!
RER A meets B

I adore this one, collage done at the Matisse hall in the modern art French museum.
Francois and Nina drawing.
redblack&blue (with some green)
 At an agile conference in France, arrived early before my session, and watched tons of free ducks and geese roaming the place
Just before Foi-Gras.

See you next Spring cleanup.

Bus watching in the capital P

Did you ever stand near a bus station so long, that when the bus arrived you don't know since when you are there... days? weeks?
That you don't remember where you wanted to go,  and whether you really did. 
That you are not even sure that the person who started standing there is still you.

I guess you didn't.
Neither did I.

It's a lame metaphor, but that's a little how I feel when doing this post.
I'm not the person who started this blog, and probably not even the person that published the (one before) last post.

Lots of drawings piled up on my desk and all around in the past few months, so I'll just post some off the top of the deck. 

First three are from a music-drawing session we had a few weeks back:

Four different musical pieces on one sheet
koyaanisqatsi

Goldberg Variations - G. Gould
Drawing music @Natasha's
Next two are from this week's session at the Louvre

Art spectators upwards and downwards
And the next one is very special, most of the drawings I participate in are drawn not just by me, but with other group members, and this one is a shared work by Francois and me, idea started from drawing movement, so we stretch fast two-three lines of the movement and draw around them. I sketched some and asked him to continue, and realized how complimentary our approaches are.
I am running hectic all over the place, not closing any space, dispersing fast impressions with no breath, while he occupies space, defines clear boundaries and distributes weights and colors.
Anyway - I adore this one, and I really enjoy group-drawing.


And this is a gift I received from Francois - a portrait of both of us in Palais Tokyo.

Till nextime! (whenever she wll be...)
