About the art - Ink Drawings

Ink Statement

 

Using found objects as inspiration for my ink drawings, I have developed a working process whereby a single stil life set up becomes an exploration of form moving from realism to abstraction.

 

The crow drawings and figurative work begin with my own observation and reference photographs.  I apply direct ink to paper, employing found tools such as twigs, feathers and sticks, as well as traditonal brushes.  These tools allow for energetic and gestural marks to create high contrast black images on white paper.
