About this work
“Drawings are the seeds of invention. These experiments feed the process and the eventual paintings. Careful renderings are met with expressive gestures. The outcome–often a gamble– with the hope of depth, mystery, and intrigue surfacing. It is the balance of opposites: precision and suggestion, fact and feeling, holding on and letting go. Employing charcoal, lead, multiple erasers and blending stumps. A drawing comes to life– a visual reference that is part of a bigger story. It is accurate depiction followed by soulful interpretation. The final work is intended to invite contemplation. Enjoy” ~Terry Gardner
