Hyperrealist Rorschach "Paint" Blots Rendered in Colored Pencil by Cj Hendry

April 9, 2019

…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.

The series, Complimentary Colors, is far different than the artist’s previous style, which for several years had been exclusively black and white. You can view pieces from her past and present, as well as a series of billboard-sized works, on the artist’s Instagram. (via My Modern Met)…
