Have you ever considered the pen or pencil strokes that make up a drawing, or how they would look if transposed from paper to another medium? D.C.-based artist Martine Workman explores these possibilities with her work, which varies from whimsical drawings of figures to zines that explore life experiences. Workman will talk about her work and its evolution over the last few years since moving to DC from the Pacific Northwest in her Luce Artist Talk this Saturday, November 22 at 1:30 p.m. Her various works on paper bring together different element--such as food in pop culture, like in her zine, Prince Food. Other works explore the enjoyment of nature, as in her large work, The River, which depicts the experience of floating down a river in an inner tube.

Workman is a graduate of the California College of the Arts and has shown her work at small press fairs since 2004. This year, she was a Sondheim Artscape Prize semi-finalist, 3rd Place Trawick Prize recipient and was awarded the DCCAH Artist Fellowship Grant for 2015. Her current show, Dusk Woods, will run at Cultural DC's Flashpoint Gallery from November 21 to December 20, 2014.
