Gallery | Ghosts

Dynamic, sculptural drawings inspired by the figure and the tree, reflecting my fascination with the human/arboreal relationship.

Made using a reductive drawing process, where charcoal is removed to reveal the light of the surface beneath, they capture the way light catches a tree's trunk to reveal the intricacies of its scarred surface in relief. Subtle layered marks and shifts of tone suggest corporeal forms emerging from the velvety blackness of charcoal.

Read here about how the charcoal ‘Ghosts’ develop from memorable meetings with individual trees, or watch this Artist Talk to see how the series of work developed.
