Kilroy's Delight

Flora Dora, 2008

I saw some really interesting work by CJ Pyle at the Midwestern BLAB! show held at Columbia College earlier this year . He uses ballpoint pen, pencil, and colored pencils to create drawings of faces made up of rope-like designs. He's a self-taught artist who's been working in this style for many years. CJ has a solo show titled Kilroy's Delight, opening tonight at Carl Hammer Gallery in River North.
