Art Description

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

We all experience fragmentation of relationships. I was interested in capturing the many facets of fragmentation, such as loss, family conflict, divorce, confrontation, separation and not connected. This sketch uses rubbing out as well as applied marks to represent these various form of fragmentation within a relationship. I looked at work by Modigliani, Henry Moore, Rodin and Giacometti for inspiration. I then let go of their styles and just focused upon the concept of Fragmentation in relationships, allowing my own style of drawing to flow. I enjoy figurative loose drawing and to capture the spirit of a subject. If the drawing works well, then it will talk back to me, presenting new lines of thought. To achieve this, as well as the loose drawing style I try and use a mark making technique where I keep loosing and then regaining control. Constant evaluation dictates if the pencil or charcoal marks stay or get rubbed out. The process is very fluid and often bold. One of the reasons I work simply with paper and charcoal is because I do not get too attached to the piece. I am happy to redraw areas or rub out large areas and experiment on the page. I am not concerned with producing a finished piece of art work, but more about thinking on the page and exploring ideas.
