2.2 Sketches by Samuel Mockbee

Samuel Mockbee’s sketches provide a profound look into the artist’s heart and soul. Mockbee’s gut reactions to events and sentiments were captured in free-hand representations of his thoughts. One look reveals a man rebelling against the notion that architectural drawings should fall into strict guidelines. He aimed to capture the spirit of a potential place as much as its outer appearances.

“For me, it’s the act of drawing that allows the hand to come into accord with the heart,” he said.
