REVIEW

 

..”the selections for Sketch 2017 continue to challenge what the concept of a sketchbook is and for. One searches for intimacy and authenticity, questioning the role that notebooks play in an artist’s practice. Anne Desmet’s people and places evidence a sketchbook as a constant companion..” Fiona Robinson, Evolver Magazine July/August 2017
