From a Series on Purgatory

From a series on Purgatory: 


Drawings: Black charcoal (primary), pastel, and pencil (secondary) on A2 Paper (42.0 x 59.4cm).

The inspiration behind this series of charcoal on paper is to use the expressive medium as an outlet for emotional turmoil; figuratively, the torment of the soul as it passes through purgatory and awaits Judgement, wearing the burden of sins with fear.

There are ten art-works in the collection, the first three selected here:


Thomas, Jack: Purgatory 01, 2017


Thomas, Jack: Purgatory 02, 2017


Thomas, Jack: Purgatory 03, 2017


*I am inspired by art throughout the ages, but, in particular, modern art with religious motifs or strong thematic ideas. All art is For Sale, Original, Signed bottom-right, and at a negotiable price. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for more information HERE. Entire sketchbook journals in ‘Moleskine’ are also available for purchase. The drawing materials that I use are ‘Conté à Paris’ for pencil, pastel, chalk, charcoal, and ‘Winsor Newton’ for Inks. All paper is the finest ‘Daler Rowney’ for style and thickness appropriate to the medium.
