Visual Description : Large abstract colour pastel drawing. The drawing is divided into six square areas, similar to a grid. Each area has a different ambiguous shape in it that possesses visual traits of both birds and insects. The colour scheme of the drawing consists of black, gray, orange and the white of the paper. The linework is dense and highly gestural, creating a sense of chaotic movement. The linework also gives the appearance of the images being scratched into the surface of the paper.
