Drawing: Ink, Gesso on Canvas.
I've made this drawing with ink on canvas, which is mounted on 4 cm wide frame. Creating this artwork I've used a detailed drawing technique with ink pen liner 0,5 mm wide, which took me a long time to finish the work. The reason for this decision is my homage to endangered species. Not only to vanishing plant species (there are only ten the most endangered species of plants in Slovenia and Europe represented), animals and cultural heritage, but endangered species of those as well, who have trouble to adapt to the living in the hyperproductive world today, when taking time means hard-to-achieve luxury and genuine connection may be only one of the remaining lines on the long list of dying manners of living.
I've started to draw on the surface with no pre-sketched canvas to achieve a fresh line as possible.
The artwork was awarded 'the most original Kurent' title and received International Visual Art Award KARNEVAL 2019 at International Painting Ex Tempore Ptuj, Slovenia. Kurent is Slovenian cultural heritage mask which represents the end of Winter and welcoming of incoming Spring.
