Art Description

Drawing: Graphite on Paper.

Balanced - This Manimal work created in graphite is one of four drawings depicting aspects of the same person utilising traditional representational objects to supply a narrative to the composition. The rabbit is an Observant animal aware of surrounding and alert to danger sitting in either hand is a raven and skull both understandably associated with death but moving away from the macabre the use is more understanding of life and its fragility the conversation between the raven and the rabbit is a search for the that understanding reflecting back the intelligence of the raven bird. the sitting figure gives time to the contemplation. the equal balance of the elements held in either hand gives a subtle unity the hand clasping the skull is more dominant giving more to the thought that the sitter is in control and aware rather than in fear.
The original work was selected by Art Loves Editions to be one of 30 artists whose work represents the diversity of creativity Northern Ireland has to offer and I'm extremely proud to be chosen to reflect that strong diversity. each work is a special limited edition print. I thought it important to show the work as the other three elements of this complex portrait are available please look at
No Flight
Eat, Pray, Love
Devour
