Imagery which holds its own… silhouetted pines standing strong, portrayed through charcoal to a resolved state; at once both, powerful, harmonious, quiet and subtle. Layering charcoal, carefully creating subtle shifts in light, juxtaposed with strong contrasts of tone, detailed areas and ambiguous space. Transported from time spent within the landscape, the drawings convey a depth and mood informed by processed memories and our sense of place.
