Gary Ward @ The Salon LA

Midnight Drawings

The series exudes its title – drawings, works, ramblings and musings done in the quiet of night when daily external noise comes to a halt. Ward committed to doing a drawing per day, around midnight, for nearly a year.
Each drawing has been depicted through mixed media formats of charcoal, oil pastels, and graphite. He also introduces new-collaged works on canvas that convey a pattern of raw emotion and sharp wit. His primitive approach explores language, pop culture, and the human nature. During the exhibit, magazine cutouts, historical moments, and even the music he listens to can be seen as an influence on his artistic process.
