Emergence

I drew these a few years ago while experimenting with ink and water soluble pencils. It is a genre that I have been exploring and intend to further explore.

Recently, when I rediscovered them, they reminded me of unfinished sculptures I’ve seen at the Camille Claudel & Rodin’s exhibit in Québec City, in 2005 – the sculpture below was intentionally unfinished. I find the effect of either a head or part of a body emerging from a block of marble, for instance, striking. There is only one place to look, the subject.
