Sue Bryan | on Tumblr (USA) - Charcoal & carbon on arches (2013-2014)

Sue Bryan is an Irish artist, living and working in New York City: “My work is drawing based. My passion for drawing lies in the compelling urge to capture the things that inherently move me. Much of drawing’s appeal to me lies in its very constraint, its simplification, the reduction of nature’s macrocosm to the black of the charcoal and the white of the paper. For me, the act of drawing is an end in itself.”

~She watched with hooded eye as the birds burst forth in a scattered frenzy. Patterns of black glided in desperate flurries ……dancing with wild abandon upon the palm of her cupped hand. The purple tones of dusk became a backdrop on which they frantically darted; ebony wings reflecting a slickened sheen of sunset. Such beauty ….such light…such darkness….all bestowed in a fleeting moment which truly took her breath away, replacing it with something more. Something which gained strength and voice from the whispers contained in the arc of a crows feathered wing. ~
