I love London based artist Natasha Law silhouettes. Natasha Law is best known for her painting and line drawings of women, which lie on the boundaries between art and fashion. Her illustrations evolve from simple linedrawings in pen, with colour and detail added as layers, producing her own distinctive style.
“Bold blocks of colour and purposeful lines delineate Law’s sanguine semi-nudes. Her figures are suspended in a moment whether posed and purposeful or casual and spontaneous. Tousled hair, the curve of a hip, or discarding clothing, the works allude to the privacy of domestic spaces and relies on the viewer’s own voyeuristic fascination to draw them into her intriguing vignettes.
It is her protracted process which creates the vibrancy in her works. She often begins with line drawings from her modelling sessions and determines where to zoom in and crop the image before transcribing the lines onto the aluminium panel. She then applies numerous coats of household gloss paint in a completely dust-free environment to achieve the flawless almost liquid like surface which has become part of unique style”.
