Artist Alejandro Garcia Restrepo takes a cinematic approach to his graphite drawings. The dramatic still images feel like scenes from a silent film, full of tension and a desire to know what is next. Characters don strange attire and are found in desperate situations. The overarching theme of these images is painâ€”both the physical and psychological, victims and victimizers. Its repercussionsâ€”the wounds, for instanceâ€”are something Restrepo highlights in these drawings as his characters struggle with whatâ€™s next.
