I don't have any formal training in art, but a few years ago I took up an interest in it as a way to transcend negative, unfortunate life experiences. I enjoy drawing for my own reasons because it serves a valuable function in my own life. I also think it's helpful to share one's work with others as part of an interest-based community. I was wondering what you think of my drawings. I am open to all sorts of feedback.
The gallery, "Skeletons In The Cupboard Externalized On To Paper," a Virtual Museum was recently renamed. The long process, for me, of producing each of the drawings in this gallery, was psychologically challenging; the process was an unearthing and resolving of Jungian 'skeletons in the cupboard,' a self-led therapeutic journey. Cathartic at the end. The drawings, "Wall Rut," "Balloons," "Resilience" and "Dead Chair," were photographed with a high-end, high-resolution digital camera. While the image quality is excellent, always keep in mind that seeing the original, actual. real work-of-art, in its natural physical state including dimensions and subtleties of hues in how the appearance is always a little different in sunlight or room light or candle light is not represented duly in any digitally rendered reformatting no matter how state-of-art. Illustrations and graphics which are computer-generated, obviously are.. duly depicted.. as the originals are the images. The drawings here are all very meaningful for me, each one a trigger and reminder of umbrella phenomena.
I work at Purple Lightco S.P., a newly formed and forming Internet-based business.
