About the work
Medium
Drawing, Collage or other Work on Paper
Langdon Graves
American, b. 1978
Follow

In her drawings and sculptures, Langdon Graves depicts disembodied parts of the human form, homing in on eyes, ears, and teeth, and manipulating them with meticulous technical skill. She introduces unusual qualities, such as bees teeming around a pair of hands, or sculptures in which imagined domestic objects are imbued with corporeal innards. Case, for example, is a sea foam-colored pillow-like object sprouting hair, with a red “organelle” seeping out of a half-open zipper. For Graves, her objects and drawings are steeped in folk traditions and mysticism, and interrogate the construction of reality and beliefs. “The work on the whole seeks to reveal that a reality constructed by our beliefs and one determined by actual events are one and the same,” she has said.
