Lynn Tomaszewski – video still tracings

First of all, Lynn Tomaszewski lives in Shorewood, the suburb of Milwaukee that was my first home. My brother once described going to high school in Shorewood as “running that preppy gauntlet” which was pretty fair. But I got to experience the lighter side of life there – a.k.a. grade school. I don’t know if Lynn is from those parts originally, but I sure knew a lot of folks with last names ending in “ski”.

Second of all, she makes these sweet little drawings – tracings of video stills – that explore new notions of drawing and abstraction – while connecting right back to the earliest “mediated artworks” allegedly made by Vermeer, Ingres, and the like. Here’s a sample.
