Description

Untitled (teacher hanging)
2001
Pencil on paper
11 x 7 1/2" (framed)
Drawing is Joseph Biel’s preferred medium as he believes its directness and immediacy allow him to more readily connect with, and engage the viewer. His drawings with their emphasis on precision give one the sense that he is capturing situations, people and things he has directly observed. In this drawing, Biel seems to convey that he is documenting, with diagrammatical glee, the suicide of a teacher.
