Michael M. Hensley: Master Draftsman of The Human Form
Paintings, in a sense, are like a symphony orchestra; there can be so much going on, that one can get away with a lot. But a drawing is like a solo voice or instrument: naked; it all hangs out. Only the most ruthless honesty will work. Hensley’s figure drawings are in the great tradition, and it is encouraging that so comparatively young an artist has had the guts and patience to submit himself to a discipline only too often neglected in these hurry-up days.
