Artist Statement -

The Line and Color of an Artist.
Lucy Drumonde
The provocation of line and color is the subsequent value of the artist and the art. Lucy Drumonde‘s cartoon and illustration design is the harmonizing line with the intensity of color.
The love of lines, textures, shapes, design, simplicity, and the element s of humor, and seriousness -they unify the complexity of playfulness and personality in the final creation of an idea.
Artists such as Peter Max, John Wesley, Alexander Caldwell, Gustave Klimt’s, and Egan Schiele have whimsical patterns in usage of their lines and color. As well their work has generated emotional and poetic expression. These artists draw contradictions towards each other, and yet convene to their audience the narration in their work.
The theory of line and color is to create a simplistic image in its equal balance. The feeling of the paper with the pencil, and the pen, they create the rhythm, and the lyrical aspects of the model or character. Egon Schiele’s drawing is an example he demonstrates in the intensity of his style.

These artists have influenced Drumonde’s own direction to my own freelance unique style of drawing, animation, illustration, painting, cartooning in linear observation, and the unmanliness of color.
Lucy Drumonde’s art illustrates the emotion, spiritual, and individual journey .The journey can be about vulnerability, fear, confusion, anger, denial, and acceptance. The manipulation of the image is to demonstrate the different levels of complexities of human behavior – and they provide the narration of the character. Many of these characters are created conceptually in their private world with social themes. They are trauma, happiness, depression, and struggle in emotional poignancy.
These themes ask, “Who is this person?” What is he or she feeling?
All these elements are to get an emotional reaction from the audience, while the artist’s thoughts still remain in the work.
The result is the contradiction of the artist’s thoughts hidden in the work versus how she is actually feeling is part of soliciting cultural commentary. This is the interesting ideal to actually present what I am feeling, rather than just providing commentary while continuing my pursuit of art as a form of self-expression.
Current body of work entitled “I See” is a series of variations in mixed media; depicting the anxieties and stresses of individuals while traveling in the city life.
