Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Acrylic and Watercolor on Wood.

"The Laboring of Hope" -- Acrylic, watercolor, ink and glue on medium-density fiberboard. The title is taken from a prose poem by Odysseus Elytis.

Hope, like all human emotion, exists as part of a complex web of interconnecting -- and often contradictory -- feelings, suggested here by the web of irregular lines fading in and out of the soft gray background, anchored by passages of detailed patterning and contrasts of light and dark.

This piece is framed and ready to hand, signed and dated on front and back, titled on back.
