I am inspired by the darker things in life: graveyards, old houses, ghost stories, and monsters. This piece depicts the emotional expression of death and loss. I have witnessed the struggle of grief in the past two years as my wife lost her mother and aunt. I wanted to create a piece symbolizing the pain she is experiencing.  The drawing was created in charcoal. I used a subtractive method where I covered the surface with a thick layer of compressed charcoal, then removed the charcoal using chamois cloths, erasers, and my fingers to create the image. This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Drew McSherry finds inspiration in the paranormal and the darker parts of life. His images contain a sense of the macabre and oftentimes feel fantastical. He currently lives in California and has been influenced by artists like Eugéne Carriére and Odilon Redon. Fun fact: when he’s not painting, he is working on a series of children’s books.

This is a wonderful piece. Mr. McSherry has captured both quiet and mystery in a timeless setting. His obvious knowledge of classic art and his amazing technique create powerful images, seemingly effortlessly, with sensitivity to the play of light that establishes our perceptions and effects mood. This is one of three works that I have and each of them exhibits both the skill of Mr. McSherry and the artistry that is uniquely his.

I love this piece more than I can say! The texture and mood is exquisite (in person) than can be shown online. I will cherish this work until my dying day and pass it down as an heirloom in my family. I'm taking it to the gallery to have it framed today and when that is complete I'll post a picture of it on ugallery.com. Much thanks for your talent and vision, Drew! _K. King_ :)
