Asparagus

Artist: Pira Urosevic, Canada
Artist Statement: This piece is born of a monthly personal challenge I present myself with. Using only inks sent in a sampler pack by an online shop, I combine the colours in a single drawing that is based upon their selected theme. This month it was ‘Farmer’s Market’. I use an assortment of dip nibs, water and watercolour brushes on Stillman & Birn – Zeta Series, which stands up to the repeated addition and subtraction of colours without warping or breaking down.

About me: I have been drawing casually most of my life and am always experimenting with materials. Currently I am fascinated by fountain pen inks. Although they are available in a rainbow of shades, most are not designed to be permanent; being neither fade nor water-resistant. My interest lies in the organic nature of the materials, which seem to have a mind of their own and let you know that control is an illusion and all things are in transition. Mostly it’s about the excitement of having fun with the materials.

Media: Pencil, ink, and watercolour
Surface: Zeta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – White – Smooth Finish
