Laura SHECHTER silverpoint drawing By the Mirror

Description: In its complex spatial relationships and remarkably specific detail, this meticulous realist drawing of a semi-interior is typical of Laura Shechter's work from the 1980's. The title "Still Life by the Mirror" directs the viewer' eye to the reflection in the cabinet mirror. This drawing is executed in silverpoint. Laura Shechter is one of a small number of contemporary artists skillful enough to use this meticulous drawing technique in which one draws with a fine silver wire. The challenge is to make a line without piercing the paper. After long hours of slowly building up the drawing, the forms emerge--delicate and luminous. Over time, the drawing's surface ages to a silvery-brown.
