After there was nothing there was a woman

Format: 594*841mm
Medium: Hand-made Ink, Graphite, Emulsion and Collage on Somerset 300 gsm paper.
This painting is based on a Ted Hughes poem. When reading this poem I was given an image of a vicious attack. The poem is written from a very chauvinistic perspective, this inspired the painting's perspective. Using photographs of WW2 fighter planes as inspiration, I reconstructed the image using an old map and graphite.
