Drawing: Ink, Chalk, Acrylic on Wood.
"Unwritten Language", 2016, ink, white chalk, acrylic on MDF panel, 30 x 30 cm.
The passage of time, mortality, the ephemeral nature of organic life are all here, but also the durable nature of beauty, which changes with the season but does not vanish.
The panel is sealed and painted with several layers of dove-gray acrylic, shading to an off-white toward the center; this is sanded and polished smooth, then sealed again and serves as a substrate for a detailed pen-and-ink drawing of fallen leaves, executed in a dense cross-hatch technique. Selected areas of the image are lightened with white chalk or light acrylic, then the entire image is sealed with a light dusting of UV protectant acrylic polymer varnish.
