About the Item

black and white landscape drawing on paper of a whimsical tree in a wooded forest charcoal and carbon on Arches cotton paper 16.5 x 11.25 inches unframed This contemporary charcoal drawing on Arches cotton paper 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. This vignette of a wooded landscape of a gloomy forest with winding tree limbs 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 a white background and far off grasses. The drawing is completed on high quality Arches cotton paper and is mounted on wood. The artist's signature is located on the back of the drawing. 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.
