Naughty by Nature with MARISSA TEXTOR

Marissa Textor’s graphite drawings are hyperrealistic and vivid.  With her pencil, Textor bends and molds shades of grey and white seamlessly, creating images so true to life that they appear to be photographic.

Her subjects vary, but she often creates images of pre- and post-destruction, conjuring an extreme sense of foreboding or impending devastation.  Somehow this momentum she captures lingers with you as a viewer.  After seeing “Alone out Here” in NAP 97, I am still somewhat-subconsciously haunted and chilled by the quiet and predatory sharks she depicts. - Ellen C.
