Description

 

Part of a series of graphite drawings that deconstruct the traditional notion of anatomy.

 

They incorporate surreal elements that evoke feelings of dissection. The simple shapes are extended to depict decomposition of time. Something that was once beautiful and whole, is now at its final moment, just before it collapses on itself.

 

It is a brief moment of suspension that screams: Nothing lasts forever.

 

The dark and contrasting usage of graphite is to add a touch of realism and dramatic tension to the hand. It reaches out as it melts away. The liquid has a wax-like and acidic quality, dissolving at the base of the arm. The drawing floats on a bare background.
