Art Description

Printmaking: Graphite, Pencil and Charcoal on Paper.

A drawing inspired by...."If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people." ~Thich Nhat Hanh

There is a connection between us and all our ancestors, going back to the first single cell organism. Whatever our ancestors did, affected how we are. The same is true for us, we are responsible for our actions and they are our only true possessions. Our actions will shape the generations to come.

The drawing was done using just charcoal on paper. I wanted a simple approach so that the subject matter could be focused upon without distraction. I kept the process fluid, working quickly and directly. I did not think about the finished image, but merely used the charcoal and paper as a means to explore my thoughts. I erased some areas and kept drawing over the top, as new ideas presented themselves. A feeling of the thought process began to enter the drawing. I enjoyed the way the drawing began to speak back to me, with areas of unpremeditated marks presenting new lines of thought. Mike Heseltine UK Artist.
