Drawings

The mask maker sits, camouflaged among his wares. It is interesting to note that his own face is hidden, while he shows us many faces in different states of emotion. Is it just a picture of a craftsman and his wares, or does it make a comment on the essential isolation and self protective, secretive nature of the human heart and the disguises we give ourselves to present to the various worlds we inhabit?

This deceptively simple ink line drawing of bathers frolicking in the surf has a clarity of line reminiscent of figures on ancient Greek pottery.  Arms akimbo, the figures celebrate the waves almost as though raising invisible offerings in their play.  

The ink line drawing, "The Sculptor's Table" is a look at the interior of a sculptor's small studio.  We see him in an introspective moment.  The scene is ambiguous, as we can't really say if he is envisioning his next project, or perhaps lost in a moment of sadness.  The outside window is close by, but he is contained in the small room which holds his work and his tools.  SOLD
