The Art of Denise Stewart-Sanabria

“If drawing traditionally provides an intimate medium through which to sketch, record, and transmit both the loosest and most precise of figurative detail, Denise Stewart-Sanabria’s practice turns that tradition on its penciled head. Life-size and larger-than-life-size, her charcoal on birch plywood drawings dwarf the viewer, existing as uncanny representations of average folks in real space.”

– Lori Waxman, Freelance Contributor with the Chicago Tribune, Artforum, and Parachute
