Lightness and Darkness (Gestalten commission )







Lightness and Darkness is an experimentation with form and volume focused on Hair elements who distort the human body almost beyond recognition.After lots of changed ideas and many sketches, I finally have some characters finished. These are the first two in a series of eight I have called 'Lightness and Darkness'. I quite like who they have become! Each one is drawn on heavyweight archival watercolour paper and I ended up using graphite , and ink .they were inspired by Alexander McQueen, Devon Aoki, nick knight, Visionaire (1997)
