Greenman

Louise Morris

Telford, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

The green man, overtaken and chained by machinery, fighting against polution and destruction of nature but unable to breakfree.
This is a pastel drawing onto textured paper.
A long time ago I saw a similar picture by an artist I do not remember, quite possibly it was in a horror comic and although it is not from my own imagination – it was such a striking peice that I wanted to reproduce it, using pastels I built up the layers of colour, texture and shade. Whilst I have no idea what inspired the original artist to come up with such a dark and deep peice, as I created my version of it, I felt that it was a dark representation of nature being held captive and slowly destroyed by the modern world.
