About

Whippersnapper (Realistic Charcoal Landscape Drawing on Panel of a Large Tree) by Sue Bryan Contemporary, detailed black and white charcoal landscape and still life drawing of a large tree Charcoal and carbon on Arches on wood panel 16 x 16 inches, 24 x 24 x 1 inches in custom Larson Juhl graphite finished wood moulding, 8 ply mat and AR non-glare glass This contemporary charcoal drawing on wood panel 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 pencil. This detailed tree portrait that Bryan describes as a 'tree creature' is given a great amount of mysterious shadow by the artist's mastery of the charcoal medium. Dark leaves and branches in black charcoal contrast elegantly against a white background. 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 black charcoal and also on the back. Artist Statement: "My work is drawing based. As a native of Ireland, the landscape there has certainly shaped and influenced my own history. Many of my drawings are of places that have a deep personal association for me; an endeavor perhaps to stay connected to my roots. My aim is not only to convey a sense of place and belonging, but also an attempt to capture the ineffable, to evoke a feeling or a memory, to invite the viewer to look beyond and beneath what they see. My process is one of building up tones and textures using a combination of charcoal, carbon and graphite, all of which yield a wonderful range of blacks and grays that vary in density and transparency as much as in tonality. Much of drawing’s appeal to me lies in its very constraint, in its simplification, in the reduction of nature’s macrocosm to the coal-black char of organic matter. For me, the act of drawing is an end in itself." 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.
