Drawing: Charcoal, Gesso on Wood.
Voyage is an original charcoal and conte drawing on gessoed wooden panel, sealed with fixative and a matte varnish. It is shadow framed with a simple white wooden moulding and is ready to hang.
I love drawing movement and started to use the horse as model alongside my figurative work around 3 years ago. This drawing, from my ongoing series of horses in motion, features a horse free jumping, a snap shot of time when its whole body is in midair. By depicting the horse in monochrome, without colour, it focuses us on its physicality and the lack of background gives us a strong negative space which adds to the composition.
This gives us a sense of speed, power and weightlessness. I hope that the viewer gets a sense of forward energy and freedom from this work.
