blog 2: Yvonne Jacquette

Yvonne Jacquette is an artist that I admire, because her drawings can be basic, but so complex at the same time, like her piece, “Into the Night,” which i posted below, is just a black background with a bunch of small white shapes that make up a complex cityscape. Her drawings really just draw me in, like the other photo posted is of farm fields, and it reminds me of the drive to and from Pullman in the summers. Jacquette was born in Pittsburgh in 1934, but after her schooling at the Rhode Island School of Design, she moved to New York where she continued her artwork. her love of drawings from an aerial view all started when she was looking out the window on a flight to San Diego in 1969. She started flying commercial to study cloud patterns, and started to like the idea of bright lights set against darkness. The city of New York was usually her focus for drawings, where she would take different perspectives, including the top of the empire state building.
