Art Description

Drawing: Graphite, Acrylic, Wood on Wood.

I make figurative, realist drawings of animals. I spend hours working on a detailed drawing of an individual animal, and when I feel it is finished, I then erase away part or all the drawing to show how close the animal is to extinction. So, the closer the individual animal depicted on the card is to extinction, the more of its image is erased away.
The actual erasing process is done through a variety of media and techniques on varying materials, including sanded away wooden panels, rubbed out images on canvas and washed away ink drawings. I aim to make the partially remaining drawings to be both beautiful yet alarming to the viewer.
