Hanging Ballerina

Posted on

This pencil drawing I did one weekend at a friend’s house while we sat in comfortable silence, engrossed in our own pursuits. I liked the dark, eerie feeling of the piece and it gave me and the fact that it sits on the border between dance and fetish. It gave me the opportunity to really work the graphite into the page to get that contrast between dark and light.

I sold this painting last year and it was a real pull for me. I was very attached to it, but then if I kept all the artwork I was attached to, I wouldn’t sell anything.

 

Sorry – this piece has either sold or was a commission with no prints.
But don’t despair! While I won’t ever recreate the exact same artwork, I can do something similar, so get in touch and let me know what you’re after.
