Black Light : Dark Mother

Black Light / Dark Mother

Mat Osmond has produced a film from his written piece for Borrowed Time Conference . He eloquently fuses his experience of Extinction Rebellion, praying the Rosary, the place of the Dark Mother in diverse spiritualities, and the divine Feminine, within the context of the Sixth Mass Extinction. I improvised a drawing to his talk and recorded it in one take. I used home made willow charcoal, and some huge chunks of charcoal sent to me by my friend @joescraft last year, which became totemic in the drawing, toward the end.

So in some ways this loose, live drawing is an illustration of the talk. It is also my visceral response to Mat’s trenchant words. It has become the start of planned projects that may one day take book form. We shall see.
