Art Description

Drawing: Graphite, Pencil, Ink and Black & White on Paper.

Inspired by the Pink Floyd album, The Dark side of the moon. There is one track called Brain Damage, that talks about the lunatic who is called such because he does not conform. Instead of staying on the path, he goes onto the grass. This drawing is about that song and also how some people, as a result of being different, are on the dark side of the moon. They are labelled and judged because they are different, but it is these people who often drive society with new discoveries. In the drawing, the darker column of people is taller and stronger. People who choose to be different, often require confidence and inner strength, while the people who conform can be doing so because of a lack of confidence. I enjoy markmaking (mark making) and working in Black & White in order to keep the image simple. I am using the pencil drawing as an extension of my thoughts, allowing my imagination to pour onto the paper and develop ideas. I try not to worry about composition or how the sketch looks, but simply be absorbed in using the drawing to help me explore the subject. As a result, drawings can have a surreal quality, especially where I have rubbed out areas and revised my thoughts on the paper.
