GRAPHITE SERIES
Shapes such as crosses, circles and triangles are a very part of nature and our immediate environment. We have certain associations and attachments to them both good and bad. These are some of the manifestations that came from my inner workings with graphite on paper. The Solace series of work comes from a time in my life when tragedy struck the family, with the passing of both my older brother and father within a year of each other. I believe that my mother was the one who suffered the most. For me, it was through very dark sketches, such as the ones below. They are derived from both sorrow and anger, that could not be expressed as tears. The most recent works as you see are what I call the embryo series. They related directly from the piece entitled ‘One’, whereby the formation of the Soul takes on a circular form.
