About The Artwork

------------------------- This drawing of a nude dancer is one of the first drawings I made after quiting Photoshop, getting up from behind the computer and getting my hands dirty again. It is based on an antique reference photograph, taken somewhere early last century. It started out as a quick practice sketch on a large sheet of fairly ordinary cartridge paper, and turned into something more elaborate. (You can see the stages of the drawing process on my Instragram page.) If you keep it away from moisture and out of direct sunlight, it should age gracefully (the paper will darken, go brownish in time. Charcoal and compressed charcoal on paper 97 x 65,5 cm (38"x 26") image size 100 x 70 cm (40"x 28") sheet size ------------------------- This drawing has been treated with several layers of quality fixative and is reasonably smudge proof. For shipping it will be covered with a protective sheet and carefully rolled into a sturdy mailing tube. Clear instructions for unrolling and handling will be included. I recommend handing the sealed container to a professional framer, where you can choose a frame that suits both the artwork and your interior.

I am a portrait / figurative artist working in charcoal, pastel, graphite and silver point. My portraits, vintage scenes, re-imagined classical themes and anthropomorphised forces of nature, comprise a spectrum of expression in which each series of drawings offers a distinct mode of engagement with the world around me. Humans are the main protagonist, but I am heavily biased towards the Feminine, and toward issues on a planetary scale. My approach to inspirational input is that of an omnivore, feeding in 360º on both 'high' and 'low' culture (Netflix and Cinema, Guardian, NewYorker and Reddit, Hendrix and Bach, Zappa and Beethoven, Fado, Dance and Bluegrass) My creative output (sculptures in stone, metal, wood; paintings, murals, digital photo manipulations) has always been similarly divers in form. Over the last decade, I was forced to focus on one mode of expression (2D, digital), and recently I returned full circle to the place where my creativity once sprouted. DRAWINGS Early 2020, I started drawing again, after not having done that for more than a decade, and not this seriously since my childhood/adolescence, when I hardly did anything else. In my drawings I'm still searching. The past 2 years were spent full time experimenting with different kinds of paper, charcoal, pastel, graphite, as well as subject matter. As I'm becoming more technically fluent, my work is increasingly imbued with a promiscuous mix of style features, which often makes labeling it as such into a somewhat laughable exercise, merely justified by heightened findability. I guess what I make could be called 'outsider art'. Facing the world as it is evolving, in my current situation, this is my natural response. Some pieces are more about draftmanship, and in some I am the incredulously curious alien, attempting to process present day reality on Earth. ------------------------------------------- In the decade preceding my current adventure as a late-blooming draftsman, my medium has been a Mac with Wacom tablet and much maligned but truly magnificent Photoshop. Plus a high end printer (commercial art printer for large formats) to get physical output. The endless array of possibilities one has while digitally manipulating pixels, combined with an intuitive approach, necessitates putting in place some 'stimulating restrictions'.
