Clark Stoeckley

Chess Draw

The artist will set up two chairs, a table, and a chessboard in the southwest corner of Union Square. Passersby are welcome to join him for a free game of chess. He will draw his opponent on both the chessboard and on paper, and take his turns very quickly, never attacking his opponent’s pieces––keeping his as close together as possible. He will draw the portraits of his opponents during their turns. Drawings conclude when he is put in checkmate or a draw is called. The artist will photograph the drawing with the opponent, and then give it to them.
