From a Series of Nudes

Abstracted Nudes:

 

Inspired by the abysmal depths of charcoal, plunged into the chaotic and abstracted view of the body. The texture allows for a thought-provoking insight into psyche, regardless of model, pose, or setting.

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

Hommage à Bernard Buffet

Hommage à Bernard Buffet:

 

Black Ink on A2 Paper (42.0 x 59.4cm).

I once viewed a Bernard Buffet painting on show at a private gallery. I don’t recall the name of the painting, but the expression of a lover’s hug was vivid, captured in striking black oils, giving an instantaneous angst-ridden edge to the pose. I have adopted the riddle here, but in ink and with more focus on the idea of love’s separation, which was a personal experience at the time, having recently abandoned the idea of lasting romance.

Lover’s Kiss

Lover’s Kiss:

 

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.
