Indecision

Medium

Graphite on paper

This work is part of a series of drawings of animal hybrids. “Indecision” plays on the idea of unacted upon ideas leading to immobilization, as if overthinking each possibility and its consequences have only caused a rooting in inaction and frustration. This drawing was created using mechanical pencils on paper, with the use of deliberate erasing to give the lines subtlety.

“My artwork depicts places that are known and yet enigmatic. Consider a half-remembered dream of a deep dark wood, a circus, an igloo, a tiny cave, a nest, a world you know the feel of even if you have never been. The creatures I portray are the familiar yet mysterious inhabitants of these places. They embody emotions and vulnerabilities that have become distorted yet are also closer to the truth as sometimes happens in dreams.”
