The Land and the Lore
Graphite, pencil colour, water colour, casein, collage on paper
This work is a compilation of detailed collaged drawings of characters from history, mingled with references from mythology, science illustrations, news reports, personal experiences and other sources. They are placed with figures, which are depicted like objects/shapes, denoting a sense of fragmentation and the feeling of being embedded in the collective memory. The work explores the possibilities of drawing, collage and storytelling, while commenting on the ideas of identity, exploitation and the present as a consequence of the past.
