About

Black and white country landscape drawing on paper charcoal and carbon on Arches cotton paper mounted on wood 4 x 4 inches This contemporary charcoal drawing on Arches cotton paper mounted on wood was completed in 2017 by Sue Bryan. Born in Ireland, the artist uses landscapes from her childhood as inspiration for her current work primarily consisting of beautifully detailed charcoal drawings of trees and wooded landscapes. The artist captures exquisite detail and luminous light with the mere use of black and white charcoal and carbon. The wooded landscape with a gloomy forest and cloudy skies is given a great amount of mysterious shadow by the artist's mastery of the charcoal medium and the variations allowed with it's grey scale qualities. Dark leaves and branches in dark charcoal contrast elegantly against white sunlit clouds and grasses. The drawing is completed on high quality Arches cotton paper and is mounted on wood. The artist's signature is located on the front in white charcoal and also on the back in black ink. There is a small notch in the back where it can be rested on a nail for seamless installation. About the work: A native of Ireland, Sue Bryan explores the memories of youth rooted in her homeland's landscape. Employing charcoal on both paper and panel, these moody and misty studies reminds us that the water-locked terrain is not always sunny and green. Exquisite detail found in each tree branch or mass of tall grasses lining the horizon dominates the foreground. Light emulates from the background attempting to penetrate the density of opaque cloud cover. Bryan's small scale drawings convey an intimate and highly personal sense of place and belonging.
