"Here grows the cure of all, this fruit divine, Fair to the eye, inviting to the taste, Of virtue to make wise; what hinders then To reach, and feed at once both body and mind? So saying, her rash hand in evil hour Forth reaching to the fruit, she pluck'd, she eat."
Drawing: Black charcoal (primary) and pencil (secondary) on A2 Paper (42.0 x 59.4cm).
In this abstract art-work depicting a lover’s kiss, I played with the medium of large strokes using a charcoal stick, and in just a few sweeps the figure was created. Internally, I was wrought with emotional tension, a highly charged negative energy, and expressed this directly onto the paper, turning those feelings into something momentarily positive – the spontaneous passion of romance. However, judging by the patterns of this image, there will be serious repercussions.
