Jen Stark’s Cosmic Drawings

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Reigning in a chaos of colors that seem to move with agendas of their own, Jen Stark‘s drawings take on subject matter of cosmic proportions. We featured Stark’s paper sculptures in Hi-Fructose vol. 20, and her 2D work explores a similar artistic vocabulary of geometric forms and neon shades. In her drawings, however, the chaos is not contained to one shape. Instead, wavy lines twist and twirl, creating a miniature Big Bang full of minute details drawn with quirky line-work reminiscent of calligraphy. Though rendered in a flat, illustrative style, Stark’s drawings create a remarkable illusion of space that transports the viewer into the primordial phases of these tiny neon universes. Take a look at some images courtesy of the artist.
