Up now on our online gallery is Figure and Ground, 2012 by Diana Shpungin, a Brooklyn-based multi-disciplinary artist born in the seaside town of Riga, Latvia. Figure And Ground animates graphite pencil drawings depicting a scene based on family photographs and the artist’s fractured memories. The image hovers between figuration and abstraction as the sound of crashing waves plays quietly in the background.
