Pen Principles

L.A. Bachman

"Pen Principles" is an exhibition of drawings by Nashville resident L.A. Bachman. In her artist statment, Bachman writes,  "I want my work to draw people in, people of all kinds and backgrounds. I want them to enjoy and relate to the abstract compositions before they even know why the attraction is there. I have found that eluding to tangible objects amidst unrecognizable ones soothes those who are otherwise hesitant to engage with abstract art. Recognition can be a powerful force when faced with an unknown. I incorporate organic patterns and playful colors as an offering of comfort."
