Original graphite drawing on cotton paper (FRAMED)
As part of a 7 piece collection, The Departure is based on my own personal experience. The figure, yielding and passive to his anguish is an artistic depiction of the soul pulling away from the body through traumatic experience.
The impact of this experience inspired my first pencil drawings in 12 years, and has become a visual journal in which I revisited key events from my past that led to the impact of this particular moment.
