Graphite, charcoal, and ink on 270 gr bristol paper. Framed in silver painted wood and glass.
Size: 28.7 x 40.6 in (73 x 103 cm).
Her work is born from the observation of different scales in nature, like microorganisms, geology, human anatomy, etc. She draws by manipulating dry and dusty materials like graphite, pencil, charcoal, and pastels. "I play with these materials on paper using my hands spreading and pressing them; I also employ an eraser to remove, and clean specific areas to recover light."
JOSEFINA FREDERICK resorts to monochrome as a way to veil the images and create a special atmosphere, moving farther from the referrer, to focus on the act of making. Connecting spontaneously the gestures of the moment with images from memory, freeing imagination to create possible timeless spaces.
