In this beautiful collection of drawings, Africa’s wildlife is brought to life in the organic tones of the charcoal medium. With a delicate and emotive technique, the artist has sensitively rendered each image with descriptive detail and imbued tenderness for each subject.
The monochrome tones of charcoal create an alternative and contemporary view of Africa's diverse wildlife. Without the distraction of colour, the expression, texture, composition and mood of the artwork become the focus. The subjects are often contrasted against plain white settings, creating calm, fresh images that are rich in detail, while balanced with clean open spaces. This stark approach results in a compelling collection that is a fusion of modern minimalism met with the ageless feel of classic black and white.
