I made this piece for an exhibition that opened tonight at Jen Bekman Gallery. The show is called Mixtape and the artists made artwork in response to a song.
I have been listening to a cover of the song Crazy In Love by Beyoncé a lot lately. This version is sung by Antony. I made this piece with the song in mind. I liked making the weird connections in my head between the two versions of the song and relating them to the drawing, while piecing the work together.
Tonight I was drawing people before going to the opening of the art show and I saw Antony. I was nervous (and surprised) drawing him, that is why the drawing looks so terrible. I am glad I got to see him.
Bill told me about the song.
