This is how I see an important part of my art, as: ‘Making vague ideas more clear’. After I’ve drawn something it seems like I can move along to something more important, bigger, better or just new; because I’ve out-crystalized something which was nagging deep inside. This especially happens when I draw with the colorful soft pastel medium.
One of the drawings below is from 2007 as captioned. The others are from just these last couple of weeks. Sizes are all roughly A3. Some have some charcoal in them.
The estrangement in modern society is surely a returning theme. These two below are studies for something bigger which I might make.
