"The Cradle of Life" by Tanya Clark
The Cradle of Life
Tanya Clark
14" x 25"
Charcoal and Conte on Paper
Featuring the inhabitants of the ocean floor, which is thought to be the cradle of life, this still life is composed of soft and hard corals, shells, pearls and glass. The complex structures and textures of organic intaglio have always been a source of fascination and inspiration to the artist. The smooth glass globes, in stark contrast to the myriad intricacies of coral, are nestled right at home as they represent the curious transformation of liquid sand. Strong lighting and high values contribute to the mood and mystery of this hyper-realistic drawing.
