From a Series of Ink Portraits

Inspired by the rapid motion of using a paintbrush and ink. I like to dip the ink every few strokes. The images are courtesy of using my imagination. I am not yet fortunate enough to acquire a sitter for such frantic art-work.

Drawings: Black ink on A3 Paper (29.7 x 42.0cm).

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.
