Winnie Truong’s portraits are drawn with pencil crayon on paper. She’s all about anonymous faces, but also about distinctly awkward moments. The works are large scale, in contrast to regularly held beliefs about the potential of crayon, adding to the tensions created in Troung’s constructed narratives.

All that said, the work is essentially really fun. Truong showed with Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects, of Toronto, at Volta.
