The Fig and the Box. 2013, charcoal and Conté 18 x 21 inches.
I planted the fig tree and the box as twigs in the front garden and now their contrasting personalities are interesting and lovely all through the year. The box is kept trimmed to suggest a figure and the fig is transformed when its decorative leaves fall to reveal its skeleton.
