The New Mothers” | charcoal & graphite on paper, 2.5 x 1.8 cm | 2018
Based on a photograph by Sally Mann (“Immediate Family“, 2014 reissue by Aperture).

Working on this drawing gave me more peace and solitude I could have ever hoped for. A strong focus on every single stroke of a pencil can make the world disappear. I knew that all along but with this tiny picture the feeling was so much stronger – an amazing experience.”

A masterful photographer by the name of Sally Mann once captured a stunning and beautiful moment in time. One day I will show her this drawing of that moment and ask for forgiveness for my hubris and failure to recreate it.

So there I was – taking a photograph of my portrait displayed at an exhibition yesterday when this old man suddenly walked right past it. I’m still amazed by his appearance and demeanor.

People often wonder how I draw. Here is a brief example of my general approach towards graphite and coal drawing – (1) template coal, graphite and chalk sketch, (2) a graphite shading pass and (3) a coal shading pass. The template sketch is a separate drawing altogether and serves as a guide in the drawing process.

It’s like a prison, a beautiful one at times but a prison nonetheless. There are the occasional visitors sometimes who are amazed by its appearance – blissfully unaware of the fact that they helped me build it a long time ago.
