Kim Ragsdale

 
Trail, Oregon

Artist's Statement

Kim Ragsdale's work is a expression of her experiences living and working in the country. She conceptualizes an era of working cowboys and cowgirls and the animals and action that surround them. Her subjects are captured in their element, performing daily tasks. All her ultra-realistic black and white drawings are done using high quality graphite with 19 differentiated degrees from especially soft to extra hard. She says, "I've learned to draw what I see, not what I know is there."

Kim's fine art and commission work is in private collections throughout the West, including Arizona, Nevada, Montana, Washington and her home state of Oregon.

"Pieces of Summer"

Graphite on Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper
This is a twist on the "deceive the eye" style of M. Escher.  The hands belong to the children, who are putting the puzzle together and remembering the summer. It took months to work out the details of the concept of this work. Nine different photos were used as reference and 210 hours were spent from first to last pencil stroke.
Dimensions: 25H"x 30W"
$4,500 framed

"Thank You"

Graphite on Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper
This piece is dedicated to all the bull riders that salute the crowd after a being pummeled during their eight second ride.  Even in pain, they are still courteous.  This work won the St. Paul (OR) PRCA Rodeo poster competition for 2006, the first black and white to do so.
Dimensions: 30H"x 24W"
$2,400 framed
