Drawing: Graphite, Pencil, Black & White, Paper on Paper.
A portrait of Pan, the last of the pagen gods. It is inspired by the chapter The Piper at the Gates of Dawn in the children's classic, Wind in the Willows, and by Arthur Machen's haunting novel The Great God Pan. The whole point of Pan is that he is unknowable, so how do you draw him? I approached Pan as an enigma—a supposedly modern, earthly man, but with a depth of sadness at the passing of his time. No one believes in him anymore, yet he still walks among us, a lonely man. It is a pencil drawing on Stonehenge paper with jagged edges on the top and bottom of the page.
