Drawings are the most intimate works of Shizico Yi, therefore it is rare to have few only coming to the market and be available.
This is a drawing study of her cat in the garden over the few days, the nature of a cat constantly on the move made a difficult subject to draw from life, that is why to Shizico insist to paint and study from life not from pictures so it challenges the image and the process.
Gilded gold is another signature of Shizico's materials, she use the visual language of the gilded gold as an instrument to play with the space and to achieve the effect of that similar to Japanese block print, which brought another dimension to the fascination of the drawing.
Drawing vs the artist:
Shizico believes that the act of drawing is a very direct way to contour one's life and how she sees the world around her. Every line is a way to touch each fine grain of a thing. The drawing contours a person's life and memory, like people do throughout one's life.
