Paul Rumsey

So odd and evocative to see such classic-looking work relating to contemporary issues. The subject matter fluxuates from greek myths to pieces that look like they could be editorial in nature. The handling of the charcoal is lovely and delicate, and there is a dark, rich quality to the balance of light and dark, and the texture. There is also a sort of seriousness, that perhaps derives from the method itself. No frills, just drawing, and feeling.
