Artist Cj Hendry (previously) rocketed to fame in 2017 with her unbelievably realistic colored pencil drawings of daubs of paint. For her upcoming solo show, which opens on April 10 in Brooklyn, the artist continues in her signature style, focusing on precisely rendering the imprecise nature of Rorschach blots. Each drawing by Hendry balances hyperrealism with abstraction and depicts a vibrant mirror image of a mix of squished paint, recreated in colored pencil.
The show is housed in an all-white inflatable bounce house, a playful nod to the test’s origins as a psychological diagnostic tool. RORSCHACH runs through April 21, 2019. You can see more of Hendry’s in-progress and completed drawings on Instagram. (via Trendland)
