Louise Despont's intensely intricate graphite illustrations are created on delicate sheets of antique ledger paper, similar to those that turn-of-the-century organizations used for their accounting. Despont takes these mundane parchments and draws mysterious, graphite designs onto them, similar to renderings of architectural plans or portraits of deities, with an Art Deco aesthetic. The overall muted pattern works by this Brooklyn based artist are meticulously meditative and alluring.
