Art Description

Drawing: Charcoal on Paper.

My interest here was in creating “The Harpies” out of mainly very black, harsh, jagged gestures and having these flow together filling most of the space. The Harpies were three horrible sisters who sapped the earth of all vitality, and I chose greed, religion and power, represented by pendants around each’s neck, as the qualities they represent. I feel my gestures are very strong in this one.
