Art Description

Drawing: Charcoal, Pencil, Conte and Ink on Paper.

Inspired by the Fleming tomb in Lincoln cathedral. The Bishop had his tomb made showing two representations of himself. One as the traditional sculpture but another beneath which shows his body decomposing. It is a reminder that however noble you may become in life, we all experience the same in death. The drawing is done using charcoal pencils on white watercolour paper. The paper gave a nice rough surface for the charcoal to bite into, producing a textured line. Cathedrals in the UK are an attractive source of inspiration. The mix of Heaven and Earth, present in one place, provides material for drawings that explore the metaphysical.
