'Taking The Bull By The Horns'

by: Frances Lemmon

This unique piece is best described by Frances herself:

“Taking the bull by the horns” is about risk taking and being alive to the moment.' 

This is one of three pastel drawings that came into being from becoming interested in the prehistoric Guernsey landscape all around us and looking at the different layers of earth literally beneath our feet. I loved working with the pastels as they can be manipulated in various ways; washing them down or layering them like chalk so a subtle depth can be built up over time which creates a softness that is strangely energising and calming at the same time.

Each drawing was based on an image that has stood the test of time and has equal meaning in the 21st century as in the past.

Type: Pastel on canvas; framed behind glass

Dimensions (cm): 120 (w) x 84 (h)
