I quickly became a fan of Michael Horwitz’s portrait drawings when I read about them a few weeks ago. So when I saw him stationed to make portraits at PICA’s Time-Based Arts Festival, I got excited. Not only did I want to have my picture made, I also wanted the chance connect with Michael since we both make portraits of strangers. It’s always interesting to hear about another artist’s creative process.
I sat down in the grey folding chair and Michael got to work drawing my hair, the pink in my cheeks on a hot September night in a dance club, and my fidgety hands.
Thank you Michael, for my portrait, and yours.
