Eric was pretending to cry. (charcoal pencil; A4, 1998) Usually he posed nude or in a turban and/or sarong. Sometimes he stuck pins in himself or adopted excruciatingly difficult poses to test himself. This made a tension that excited everyone in the studio. Being a buddhist monk he believed in mind over matter. At the same time he communicated how it felt to be him during these ten minutes and we all shared his total absorption which is transparent in this drawing. I wanted to blog an aquatint today but it was a disaster. Sometimes it is good to look back into the past in order to go forwards...
