Graphite lead on paper | 2018
Martinet & Texereau created this work during Tappan’s Artist Exchange Program, where artists from across the globe swap homes and studios. The French duo traded places with LA-based Andrew Steiger and were inspired to create the “Los Angeles” series—drawings that explore the suburbs and architecture of Southern California. Through the eyes (and pencils) of newcomers seeking beauty in their surroundings, banal domestic scenes are transformed into extraordinary studies.
