Charcoal on paper
"When I create a work in charcoal, very often what inspires me is not a particular person, but a feeling. My work reflects what I am going through at the moment. Every piece is a new page in my diary. I have been an oil painter for the past decade, but as a child I had a passion for drawing, faces in particular. The past year has been a very difficult year for me and what I felt and went through couldn’t be written in color. This is how I returned to my childhood and decided to capture this feeling in a drawing. The Thinker is a male version of me. The model is not looking straight at us. He is looking away but up. Not wanting us to know what is going through his mind, but still hopeful about a brighter future." - Marta Crawford
