Not looking far for her inspiration, artist Joan Linder finds the idea of a really messy kitchen sink fascinating and manages to share the complexity and intricacy of this everyday fixture through her highly detailed sketches.

The drawings capture the never ending dishes that always pile up at the end of each day, the faucet that is constantly in motion as it peers down at the mess below it and the dish soap and utensils that accompany all the plates and bowls like groupies at a concert. Her series of sketches is separated into two distinct collections; black and white pencil portraiture of realistic detail and shading, as well as colorful creations depicting blur of movement and hectic, overlapping lines.

Joan Linder makes a messy kitchen sink an interesting artistic subject.
