Drawing from Ancient Language…

Lost Language

This is a charcoal drawing I made when I was studying the Hebrew alphabet. I unfortunately never learned the language but I developed a love of the shapes of the letters and those of ancient languages in general. The layering of the letters speaks to me of how meaning becomes diffused over time. The work measures 11″ x 14″. #hollywongart #worksonpaper #lostlanguage #sanfranciscoart #californiaart #charcoaldrawing
