Each Line One Breath, Freehand Drawings by John Franzen

freehand drawings by john franzen

The breath is the basic movement required by life. In, out, onward forever. The line serves the same basic principle to drawings and sketches. They are the basic life of the creation, the simplest form. When the lines are allowed to flow and metamorph under the fingers of talented artist like John Franzen, the results are stunning. The Each Line One Breath series uses simple lines with variable weights and flowing structures create by Franzen as he focuses on breath and not the creation of a realistic creation. Intriguingly, the creations take on a life of their own, a fluidity and balance that mimics nature.
