back to black

I have been using power tools too much lately and I wanted to return to some drawing and something organic. I began this 5'x3.5' drawing. It revolves around the female being born with all the eggs she will ever need for reproduction. In front of the image of a medieval illustration of a woman's torso opened like a curtain from a stage play, there is a seed pod spilling it seeds into wind. This piece deals with my own apprehension about pregnancy. Year by year my lifetime supply disappears into oblivion. Medieval illustrations of anatomy are humorous to me. They depict women (and men) and their organs as curiosities to be discovered.
Returning to the line, brushstroke and
chalk-mark is a welcome change.
