Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Gesso on Paper.

The Lady of Elche is a mysterious limestone bust of a beautiful Goddess dating back to 400 BC. She was unearthed at Elche (1897) in the Alacante region of Spain and has ever since been the celebrated symbol of Spain.
In this oversize drawing, I attempted to depict the ephemeral beauty of The Lade of Elche by using raw materials to reflect the character of this ancient limestone sculpture. Sumi-e ink (made from burnt tree bark soot), gesso, limestone powder and crumpled recycled paper were used to successfully capture the essence of her time-worn portrait.
