The Tales Pocket Series IV – Frog – Original Framed Drawing

Elizabeth works in the single medium of a 2B pencil to create all the textures and different surfaces of the drawing.

Approximate size – 24cm x 30cm

One of only 2 drawings left from The Tales Pocket Series exhibited at Overgrowth 2 at Last Chance Studios in Perth, Western Australia.

2b pencil on Canson Dessin paper, 14.8 x 21cm.

The work explores ideas of belonging, framing, cropping and narrative. In The Tales Series Elizabeth uses drawing to investigate seemingly conflicting objects and animals with different surfaces and textures, she employ the single medium of a 2B pencil to investigate these. Through these incongruous compositions, a provoking and unusual narrative is created for the viewer, inspired by classic children’s literature specifically Beatrix Potter, Carrol’s Alice in Wonderland and Norton’s The Borrowers. She mimics Carrol’s and Norton’s inherent notions of scale and plays with these in her drawing. The drawings are often left unfinished as a way in for the viewer, a gifting.

One of the most entrancing characteristics of Elizabeth’s work is her ability to draw the viewer into her way of seeing the world where one takes nothing for granted and everything is new and interesting; an Alice like wonder at the beauty of unlikely objects.
