Ovvio Arte is pleased to present SPIT, a series of large scale drawings by Nashville artist Jessi Zazu
The show represents an extensive collection of Zazu’s recent figurative line drawings on paper in oil pastel, and includes portraits of herself and others done in a strong gestural style.
Zazu, a multi-disciplinary artist, is also a lead vocalist, songwriter, and guitarist with the band Those Darlins. These works were created while writing and recording the band’s forthcoming album, due in October.
Zazu describes the process of songwriting and drawing as mutually supportive: “When the words stop, the drawing begins, and vice-versa.”
This show will be her first solo exhibition and her first at Ovvio Arte, with whom she and her band have collaborated on numerous design, video and photography projects.
Join us on August 1st for an opening reception with the artist from 6-9 pm.
