Pencil drawings by Amy Dover
Amy Dover’s pencil drawings tackle the dark side of nature, the hidden world. Beautifully executed in graphite pencil she shows, man, bird and beast in all its devastating beauty. Inspired by music, poetry and folklore, she tackles subjects, like death, humiliation, and deceit. Characters of cannibalistic crows, humiliated bears, and the innocence and loss of a dead sparrow. A dark and often macabre narrative runs through every piece, inviting the audience to read in to it. Since graduating in the summer of 2008, Amy has exhibited in both group and solo shows, all over the country, as well as gaining international press.
