Face Value Artists’ Portraits by Alphonse van Woerkom

Exhibition Website

Oct 6 2017 - Nov 26 2017

Alphonse van Woerkom is an artist fascinated with other artists. As a life-long draftsman, his natural response is to draw portraits of them. He invites friends and colleagues to sit for him and, using his numerous smaller sketches, works up a wall-sized drawing. A master of the medium, van Woerkom uses a wide variety of drawing techniques. The result is a likeness that is realistic yet full of evocative and provocative marks. The visitor will see up close the artist’s methods and how they come together to form powerful images.
