Historical Context:
"While studying abroad in England last summer, I was fascinated by the intricate details of the architecture, and was inspired to draw a few of the buildings. As I did so, I realized that each building was saturated with its own unique patterns, distinct from all those around it; each structure was leant personality by its own architectural fingerprint. As I draw the variations of recurring forms which make up the face of a building, I am able to step back from the concerns and worries of the moment; I am granted time to reflect on my life and work through the problems I face while I simultaneously continue to discover my own artistic voice." - Emily Hahn
