Jason Rankin, Bend 4, 2018, graphite on paper, 50 x 38 inches

It is my intention to create art that is accessible to the greatest number of people. I feel that graphite pencils on paper is the most ubiquitous of all art forms, as almost everyone in the Western world has drawn with a pencil on paper at some point. My drawings are intended to express my personal concepts of beauty, mostly through human form and expression.  

My friend Katya has become my muse for most of my recent work, including the “Bend” series. This work is a collaboration between artist and model, allowing her to express herself in the way she chooses, while allowing me to express my own personal concepts of beauty via the human form.
