Medium: Hand made inks, bleach, graphite and black string
Ted Hughes' poems take inspiration from nature that surrounded him; religious beliefs; dark motifs and life's questions. This painting was created using many different types of black. I was trying to show how a colour, that is a non-colour, was both beautiful and could be used without acting like a black hole. The sunset is a chicken's embryo, both life and death in one egg circle of life!
