Rise/Fall by shimoda7 Rise/Fall by shimoda7
It's been a long time since I posted a new work here, or anywhere else for that matter.

I wanted to make this drawing for quite some time, but never got around to doing it. What I like about the idea is that the drawing can also be viewed/hung upside down. Not only it will still make sense, but it's actually a part of the meaning behind the whole thing.
The pebbles represent the challenges, or problems if you will, that can drag one down or lift one up, depending on the perspective in which they are placed.

Here's how it looks upside down: [link]

- Graphite on paper
- 29 x 29 cm (11" x 11")
- About 25 hours

Thanks for watching, and hope you like it.
