lines, cubes & blues

Blue is a well-loved color, potters often joke (lamely) about blue glazes being called "cash money blue." The fondness is translated into paintings and drawings as well, for myself at least. I am attracted to two qualities in these artists' work: their color choices and their use of lines. The thick, sketchy linearity alludes to cubism, and they have a solidity to them not easy to create in two-dimensions. Makes me want to grab a sharpie.
