Mixed Media Drawing of Two Soldiers and Dog
I was inspired during my recent visit to the Holocaust and Genocide Centre to illustrate the harshness and toxicity of what was endured at the camps. My A2 sized, mixed media drawing consists of many different techniques and media. I used black permanent marker, pen, pencil and charcoal. It portrays two soldiers with a fierce looking dog, taking guard at the barbed wire fence with the ever-looming presence of the death chamber in the background. Various elements of this piece are left to the viewer’s interpretation.
