after so many crazy stuff I always need to back to "more realistic" works, in this case I was trying some new paper I just bought and came across this image from a book. charcoal on paper, kneaded eraser and fingers. about 45x65 cm.
i'm trying to turn things that I feel unpleasant or as a dead space-time into something vivid, like the 1st, 2nd and 8th definitions from "the free dictionary"
