Chasm by nimra Chasm by nimra
“Chasm” pencil on illustration board 39” x 28”

Chasm

This work was inspired by the ruins of an old farm, left to the elements a chasm filled with old ghosts decaying by the new highway that cuts the land in half. It’s also about my son who at thirteen has no idea what this meant, insulated in his video-unreality not understanding, grasping or caring about the past makes for a future that is very precarious. Yet I got him together with the old woman who had lived there, she awoke the “old soul” in him and forever erased the chasm of eighty years between them. It’s a narrative work that’s not illustrative, it will stay somewhat mysterious to the viewer and start up their imagination that’s all I am aiming for.

I love this.  You give me constant inspiration to keep going.  I love the texture of the two images against sky and the dark bleakness of the trees behind.  Beautiful, just beautiful!
