The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters

2013 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

My drawing is an homage to Francisco Goya's piece of the same title. While quite traditional in execution, my aim is to bring Goya's profound message into a contemporary context. I aspire to create a compelling piece of art is not only visually captivating but is also a catalyst for conversation. My work is multi-tiered in symbolism, detailed and delicate, and aims to captivate the beauty of the natural world and of graphite drawing itself, all while honoring art history.
