Wild Is The Wind I
Charcoal on paper, unframed.
30 x 40 cm
Wild Is The Wind I drawn on the day of storm Isha when I was practising for an upcoming workshop. I saw a tornado once many years ago and it is this I credit with my fascination with powerful natural activity- it was incredible to be in the presence of such a force.
The drawing is made with liquid, willow and compressed charcoal on beautifully thick Hahnemuhle paper (the best) and is unframed. Photo in frame is for illustration only.
Offered as part of Artist Support Pledge, the brainchild of Matthew Burrows.
The project uses social media platform Instagram, which is a popular platform for artists to post images and share their work. Artists and makers can post their images using #artistsupportpledge giving details of their works and price (no more than £220 or equivalent). If people are interested in buying, they message (DM) the artist. Anyone can buy the work and artists don’t need permission to join.
Every time an artist reaches £1,100 of sales, they pledge to buy £220 of work from other artist(s).
ASP works by example, showing how a generous culture behaves and exploring the values that maintain its ethos. At the core of this is a commitment to equality of opportunity FOR ALL and an accessible platform to participate.
