The George Seurat exhibition at the MOMA is outstanding, I am so glad I had a chance to see it. For those of you too far from New York city here‘s a wonderful audio-slideshow at the NewYorkTimes page (link via Drawn). The atmosphere, lighting and mood of these charcoal pieces is really amazing. Seurat is really one of the only artists in his time that wouldn’t use line in his drawings but instead kept his sketches tonal. I found all this particularly inspiring, in fact after sketching from pieces in the museum, I started drawing some comicbook panels in my small sketchbook. The contours of a story are vaguely taking shape, I am currently trying to see if there’s anything’s worth delving into in there. Anyway, the point being … thanks Seurat for the inspiration and, if you’re in the neighborhood, don’t miss this exhibition even withstanding the expensive entrance ticket it’s still worth it.
