Portal Study IV is one in a series of studies for a larger drawing which charts the progress of a figure as it plunges into water. In these drawings I’m aiming to capture the explosions that happen below the surface as the figure enters the water; the moment it passes between one world and another and the trace it leaves behind. Charcoal is the perfect medium to describe these smoky, ever-changing clouds of light and dark.
