6" x 6"
Prismacolor Colored Pencils on Paper
This drawing is available for purchase here.
This elaborately detailed drawing is part of my Deep Thinkers series, in which various animals are juxtaposed with evidence of human thought, in the form of mathematical equations, quotes, definitions, musical scores, etc. These pieces depict a zen-like transcendent bridge between conceptual thinking and animalistic consciousness. These two contrasts are united by a careful use of color and decorative design. This miniature drawing combines abstract and realist elements in a funky contemporary aesthetic. A small robin perches upon an elaborate green and cream abstract design. The background has an elegant floral abstract motif, upon which is superimposed a section of sheet music from Nocturne in B Minor, Op. 1 No 1 by Chopin. This drawing is very detailed for its size, which lends the piece an aura of intimacy. The paper has a 1" border around all four edges to allow for easy matting and framing.
