Howdy! This is NOT a painting. It is a drawing. Charcoal and pastel on paper. It’s from a fairly long series entitled ‘The Periphery Drawings’. Mainly they’re about God. But they’re also about sound. Kind of underwater, clangy, metallic echoes in space sort of sound. There’s also a healthy dash of existential dread thrown in, just to be safe. This particular piece is an abstract vision of what Jonah saw from the inside of the whale’s mouth before he was swallowed. Appropriately titled ‘Jonah’.
