James Lipnickas is a New Haven-based artist and graphic designer. He creates highly evocative scenes representing small architectural stages in axonometric projection. Suspended stairwells, excavated blocks, and plinths separated, or all combined are located in deserted territories in a surrealist fashion.
The technique employed is graphite filling the entire surface of the paper. At first, the artist draws the contours of the volumes in grey, and later he fills the different faces with different hues of graphite to highlight the volumes.
The compositions are simple and effective, suggesting that the scenes extend beyond the visible frame.
