Wendy MacNaughton has one of those art portfolios that take you to another time and place. Suddenly you find yourself sitting in a strange subway, surrounded by strangers, asking yourself what their interesting stories might be. Her ink and watercolor drawings bring out their unique and mysterious personalities or as she says, their “quirks” and “anxieties,” yet above all she wants you to feel their isolation “despite their proximity to others.”
