U.S. Art: Editor’s Choice

Editor’s Choice

McCormick, Tracy. “Editor’s Choice.” U.S. Art September, 2002: 56.

Everyone has an artistic bias and mine is figures. The way I see it, people make for intrinsically intriguing – and challenging – subjects. Take, for example, Henry Asencio’s “Unveiling” ($1600, 195 s/n), a new mixed media release by Crown Thorn Publishing. In this deceptively simple scene, Asencio finds a sensual subject in a woman undressing, but with sweeping brushstrokes, classic lighting, and a buttery palette the talented artist brings an oft-depicted image a certain specificity and poignancy.
