Margot Glass explores the fragility of communication, and people’s natural drive to find narrative in even the most ordinary of objects. In her Envelopes series, Glass works in watercolor, pencil and silverpoint, using trompe l’oeil to highlight the paper as a still life element. The drawing becomes an object through close compositional cropping and the choice of stiff watercolor board. By omitting text, the artist adds a minimalist element to the vivid representation.
