Charcoal Angel, Christine

Charcoal Angel.


about this piece.
Christine talks about her piece, "I have been using different art mediums to explore my grief journey. My son was carving burnt wood and his hands were blackened. I decided to blacken my hands and just feel the paper. The charcoal angel came to be. I then scanned the print and digitized it and put a mirrored frame around it."
