This drawing was created during a very expressive period of my art development. My focus during this period and so with this drawing was to create works which weren’t so much pre-planned as they were created and defined in the moment as I expressed. I maintained a figurative element with almost all of the pieces during this time which I found supported with being able to relate, personalize, identify and connect with the piece.
“Throne” Depicts a figure seated in a surreal landscape. The free flowing line work used to build up this image can be seen clearly within the figure where the searching lines flowing throughout it become his skeleton, body, and in a way, his personality. The coloring breaks from the traditional colors one would normally find in a figure while at the same time holding onto the representational rules and structure which grounds this figure and scene in a recognizable and familiar reality.
