Ucci, Ismail

I am passionate about drawing as it gives me the window to my soul.

Color is a significant attribute to my practice as I conjure up tonality through contrast. I envision tones but take unconscious decisions whilst applying colors either together sequentially or sporadically. The importance of pastels for me is a mean of drawing with color. I am a colorist with sensitivity to line. The two basic elements of the art of painting drawing and coloring are combined as a single medium in pastels. I pay attention to fragile physicality that echoes in many of the artist’s compositions. I begin by drawing the figure first and then it’s surroundings brought in around up to it with an extensive additions and adjustments. The figure do not pass through the compositions but rather act with in the space that is identified as a field or zone.
