Cancellation I: no longer afraid of the dark

Continuing to play on my current fixation with shadows and pattern I am removing even more of the figure. Of course the figure is implied, but I am enjoying offering less and less of the actual characters and allowing the surroundings to form the content.

By the way, these are most likely my last two drawing on the “hercules and centaur” and “rape of the sabine” pieces for a while. I think I am up to 15 drawings  based on these two sculptures in last month.  I will pend my remaining two weeks before install focusing on the remaining details and one more sculptural piece for my upcoming exhibition Conflicted at the Roswell Museum.

I would say, as usual, the longer I work with a subject matter the more intriguing it becomes and the better the art-work I create based around it. I would hazard to say these are some of the more successful drawing I have executed in a while.

P.S. The addition text in the titles of these and the Condescension drawings are lyrics out of Radiohead’s “Fitter, Happier.”
