drawing rooms

From the cave paintings of La Grotte de Lascaux, to the abundance of frescoes that burgeoned in monasteries & cathedrals during the Renaissance, to Jean Cocteau's murals in La Villa Santo Sospir and Chapelle Saint Blaise des Simples, to modern conceptual drawings by Sol Lewitt & beyond, humans have over the years transformed their ceremonial, public & living spaces by incorporating artwork into the very structure of the space itself.

I'm very taken with these simple & graceful drawings by the mysterious contemporary poet, L.P. Promenheur. The undulating lines & natural forms bring the outside in, creating intimate spaces that are a personal blend of art, iconography, architecture & the outdoors.
