Statement

Statement

    I am presenting birds in a different manner. I am presenting women in a different manner. Combining women with birds in unexpected situations sets up a tension that is otherwise unforeseen. Without establishing a relationship between bird and woman, an isolation exists that supports a strange mood. This isolation is heightened by graphic sensibilities.

    An acrylic wash is brushed on BFK Reeves paper and after delineating imagery with a grease pencil, applied color pencil and soft pastel are rubbed into the wash. Repeated rubbings result in rich color while minimal rubbing accentuates the exressive wash. The result is a layered transparency.

Statement (War Birds)

    War Birds. Peace Birds. They intensify the mood set forth within the drawing. When the birds become military icons, they accentuate the mind set of the person involved, and doing so, portray the women as Femmes Fatales. Birds of prey become the dominant feature. Warring intentions are emphasized in an off beat manner, without showing actual violence, but having terror implications.

Same technique as above. Statement supports drawings 8, 9, and 10.
