Drew Hoover

Artist statement:

I work with chalk pastels, oils, charcoal and colored pencils to create landscapes and portraits of people and animals. With any subject, I want the viewer to feel the emotional and psychological messages that are just below the surfaces. I emphasize time of day and atmosphere through the temperature of colors, the light sources, and the strength or softness of lines. Many of my landscapes show evidences of man as temporary compared to the vastness and timelessness of nature. With portraits, I want to convey the spirit of the subject, whether it is a special sweetness, liveliness, hesitation or other nuance, which captures the essence of that individual while engaged in everyday, informal activities.
