A surreal portrait of a woman's profile
Ink on glossy photo paper
Sometimes you don't choose the work, the work chooses you. I came across a stunning photo of this woman and just had to draw her in my own way. Originally I was going to make her hair more realistic, but when I started working, it's shape began to have a crown-like quality that I wanted to keep. In the end, as with most of my work, she is made of many pieces that fit together. We form and we dissolve piece by piece.
I choose to make this work in black and white because it forces the viewer to focus on the visual texture and line-work. I want the work to be raw, tribal, and earthy while maintaining an otherworldly quality from the absence of color.
The drawing is created with a Pentel Brush Pen with permanent pigment ink and Pigma Micron pens with archival ink. It is waterproof and fade proof.
I create • I'm addicted to sunshine • the beach is my happy place • I'm an artist-at-work and artist-at-play.
