"Skewed Reality" The Drawings of Steve Opet @ Cape Fear Studios | Fayetteville | North Carolina | United States

Artist Statement: Steve Opet

My drawings are rendered in black and white primarily with ballpoint pen. I like contrast, line, form, and add a touch of color to highlight an aspect of the piece.

I use old photographs as reference, and search for photographs of children, their pets and men and women at work and at play – conventional subjects drawn in an unconventional way

Family albums are a primary source as well as magazines and books. The photographs reflect life in America, something most people can identify with.

The work is mixed media-pen and ink, pencil, charcoal, watercolors, and occasionally airbrush. My drawings are predominantly black and white with one or two colors appearing somewhere in each work.

I enjoy the fine line work I use in shading. I sometimes get abstract when rendering folds and various textures. I slightly “distort” the faces of my subjects. My people are all slightly quirky – exaggerated facial features, gangly legs and knobby knees, and grown-up heads on children’s’ bodies.
