My exhibition entitled “Nature” is a reflection of how I want to further my work in the future. I am emotionally and spiritually drawn to nature, trees specifically and I find myself continually creating images with different types of trees in various different mediums. This exhibition is a representation of my adoration towards the subject matter. I plan on continuing my exploration of nature and portraying my outlook of the content.
I chose to use such simple mediums such as pencil and charcoal because I find it to be the most pure and connected with the content. Pencil in my opinion is a very organic medium which allows me to render different aspects of the trees in a realistic way. Photography is another form of representation that captures the real essence of the trees in a way that drawing cannot. Each medium I chose I enjoy using and help me produce imagery I see in my head.
