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.

You've probably answered this before, forgive the repeat.  What brand  and texture of illustration board do you use?   I appreciate that your work expresses your feelings, life, experiences, thoughts, etc.   That is what draws me in and keeps me looking and becoming a part of it.  It is not just a technical exercise of movie posters or such.
Great art stirs the soul and causes the viewer to take a journey.  Hopefully that journey will stay with the person for a long time.  As artists we share our human experiences and deep emotions if we are open to communicate ourselves.  Thank you.

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!
