Artist's description:

A sublime hymn to master draftsmanship, this exquisite pencil drawing adds new technique to the history of drawing. Contrary to convention since antiquity, the artist rejects the practice of drawing on paper since the textured surface becomes part of the image. Rather she applies pencil to a highly polished gessoed wooden board so the viewer can focus solely on the image. Using a hard 4h pencil, she builds her images with tiny marks embedded in the gesso. The result is a glittering ocean surface image that confuses light and water at the horizon, suggesting a physical and spiritual illumination.

Framed without glazing

Materials used:

pencil on gesso primed wood, protective acrylic lacquer
